Women’s Shelter Jewelry Project

WSJP Banner

“It was just terrific to receive this,” said Ciara Murphy, director of Catherine Booth House, “Often women come here with just the clothes on their backs. They’re lucky if they have time to gather the bare essentials together, let alone jewelry. Recently the police brought a woman to us who had been pushed out of a moving car by her abuser – she didn’t even have her purse.”

The Women’s Shelter Jewelry Project solicits donations of any and all jewelry to sort, clean, repair, and give to Seattle-area women’s shelters and the YWCA Dress for Success Program. Members of the Seattle Metals Guild, and their friends, volunteer to do the sorting and cleaning. Need more information? Please send an email to wsjp@seattlemetalsguild.org.

Have a necklace that is collecting dust in your jewelry box or a pair of earrings that you just are not wearing any more? The Women’s Shelter Jewelry Project will take it. All types and styles of jewelry are accepted, even if broken, for donation and may be dropped off year-round at the following locations:
