YW Thrift boutique


YW Thrift Boutique is a bricks & clicks social enterprise that sells new and used home decor, books, clothing and fashion accessories. 100% of proceeds from sales go directly back into supporting women, gender diverse people and girls in our community.   

YW KW thrives on donations from the public. We need new and gently used items to re-sell at YW Thrift Boutique and for the YW Homelessness and Housing programs as well as financial donations for general operations.

Priority for donations received always goes to YW services and programming first IE the Emergency Shelter.

In-kind donations are received and processed for YW Thrift Boutique and YW programs and services at 102 King St. West, Kitchener during store hours.
