Donate Your Smartphones & Cell Phones to WC&S!    

Your old smartphones & cell phones can help Women's Center & Shelter!

By donating your smartphones & cell phones to Women's Center & Shelter, you can support victims of intimate partner violence. We will send your gently used phones to the Shelter Alliance Program which will result in a monetary donation to WC&S to help defray the cost of our operating expenses as we help victims. Furthermore, the Shelter Alliance will dispose of your phone in an environmentally-friendly manner!

 For more information please contact 412-687-8017 x 359 or email 

Or mail cell phones to:

WC&S, PO Box 9024, Pittsburgh, PA 15224, and we will provide you with a receipt for your donation. 


Wish List: 

Update: With a building renovation project quickly approaching, WC&S is making changes to our storage space known as the Distribution Center. Our donation space will be shrinking in order to expand shelter space resulting in more room for clients. With this change we need to make sure our current donation space is empty by June 1, 2015. This means that we will not be accepting In-Kind donations after May 1, 2015. If you wish to collect items from our Wish-List please make sure you do so and schedule a drop-off at WC&S before May 1, 2015. Thank you! 

To donate Wish List items or for other donation-related inquiries, please contact Kathi at or 412-687-8017 ext. 359

If you are interested in organizing a product drive, please fill out the Special Event Form attached here and return to Morgan at For additional information, call 412-687-8017 ext. 338


We are sorry that we are unable to pick up donations due to limited staff. Donations may be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5:30 PM. You must call first to schedule. Thank you!
