The YWCA Wichita - Treasure Chest is a friendly, conveniently-located thrift store offering a quality selection of clothing, furniture and household items at value prices.
100% of the YWCA Wichita - Treasure Chest’s proceeds support the YWCA Wichita – Women’s Crisis Center’s life-changing programs and services for women and children fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence. The YWCA Wichita - Treasure Chest has several purposes:
- Women and children served through the YWCA Women’s Crisis Center are given vouchers to shop for needed clothing when they arrive in the shelter and are also helped with household items as they leave to set up new homes.
- Proceeds from the Treasure Chest provide vital financial support for the Women’s Crisis Center.
- Many of the donations received for the YWCA Women's Crisis Center are stored at the Treasure Chest; any overflow is sold to the public.
Your donation truly makes a difference in the lives of the families we serve. The YWCA Wichita - Treasure Chest is looking for quality items in good condition to create a fun, interesting and affordable shopping experience for our families and community members.
Donations of new and clean, gently-used goods are always needed and appreciated! The Treasure Chest gladly accepts good quality, clean, usable & resaleable items during the following hours:
- Monday – Friday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
- Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Because of high customer traffic on Saturdays, no large donations (including furniture) can be accepted. Please call 316-260-6900 to schedule a donation drop-off time.
