Back to School at Empower Yolo:

Empower Yolo’s shelter staff and After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETs) team are helping to prepare the kids and students for a successful new school year.  

Community support through financial and in-kind donations like food and clothing are very helpful and make a huge difference. The community can best support the children going back to school by donating backpacks with supplies, gift cards for clothing, transportation, snacks, and reusable water bottles. These types of donations are needed all year round.  Also grocery gift cards are helpful for the “back to school” breakfast for families at the shelter on the first day of school.  If you purchase a gift card kindly include a receipt for your donation; we’ve had several donated gift cards in the past that weren’t properly loaded by the store and we weren’t able to recover the amount donated without a receipt. 

Donations can be brought to the main office at 175 Walnut Street in Woodland, or the Resource Center at 441 D Street, Davis during office hours; Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; Tuesdays, 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Thank you for your support!
