Women's Center Annual Shelter Drive

October 1, 2016 - October 31, 2016

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The #uhmanoa PAU Violence Program and Women's Center is coordinating our annual shelter drive. All donations will benefit families residing in domestic violence shelters on the island of Oʻahu. As you know, many families leave behind many daily essentials to escape unsafe situations. There is also a great need for household items when moving into their new homes after leaving the shelter.

Here is a list of current shelter needs:

Acceptable Donations:

  • Pillows
  • Blankets
  • Hairspray and hair gel
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Floss
  • Bath Soap
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Hair ties (e.g. rubber bands)
  • Razors
  • Sunscreen
  • Deodorant
  • Hair brushes

Out of respect for clients, donations should be new or in excellent condition. A helpful question when donating items is, "If this were donated to me, would I use it?"

You may drop off donations at the Women's Center in QLC 211 through the month of October.

Please email us at for inquiries.
More Information: Women's Center, (808) 956-8059

Thank you for your support!
