Make an In-Kind Gift


Each year, we rely on the support of our community to help provide over 400 homeless and at-risk youth with holiday gifts. The holidays are a particularly hard time for homeless youth who often feel isolated and lonely at a time when others are celebrating family and togetherness. Your support of our Holiday Gift Drive can help us to brighten the holidays for Larkin Street youth!

Make an In-Kind Gift to Larkin Street Youth Services

In-kind donations help Larkin Street provide important necessities to the young people we serve. Larkin Street is grateful to the many donors who contribute wish list items to help San Francisco’s most vulnerable youth.
Please respect our in-kind donation guidelines and understand that items are subject to refusal. Donated items that we must dispose of are a cost to our agency. All items must be new or gently used, clean, and in working condition.

Donations can be dropped off at 134 Golden Gate on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. 

We are limited on storage space. Please respect our policies regarding accepting donations, and call us ahead of time with questions.

We cannot accept: used electronics (printers, tube TVs, laptops), mattresses, or opened food or personal care products.

Large furniture items will be considered on a need basis. Email us photos of your item/s and we will contact you if the item meets our needs.

All other furniture items can be donated to Community Thrift at 17th & Valencia on behalf of Larkin Street, and we will benefit from the proceeds. Baby or children’s clothing will be accepted at St. Anthony’s or the Hamilton Family Center.
