Safe Place for Youth

Every year in the Fall semester, Palms students and their families donate needed items, from clothes to flashlights to art supplies, to Safe Place for Youth, an organization that helps young people transition off the streets and into stable housing and employment.

Please consider donating what you can to Safe Place for Youth during this year's drive. You can purchase needed items from their Amazon wishlist, for direct delivery to S.P.Y, or you can make a cash donation.
