Project Beauty Share is an initiative to collect cosmetics and beauty products and distribute them through local agencies to women of all ages whose circumstances do not allow them to afford these products.
We collect products all year long. Donations are sorted and sanitized, and then distributed to women's shelters in Spokane and North Idaho. These women are homeless, in transition, and the working poor; because the food stamp program does not allow these women to purchase hygiene items or makeup.

Our Sisterís Closet - YWCA
St. Margaretís Shelter

Anna Ogden Hall
Alternatives to Domestic Violence Safe Shelter (YWCA)

*The starred items need to be unused
- 15 drop-off sites in Spokane County are listed on our website.
- At Christmas, we want brand new and unused items, because this may be the only gift some of these women receive for Christmas.
- During the dry winter months, the most needed items are hand lotions, body sprays, and body butters.
