In a normal school year, you can drop off new and gently used items in a Donation Box in the Student Services Office.

During distance learning, there is no drop-off box. You must order items online, for delivery to the S.P.Y office.

Safe Place for Youth

Safe Place for Youth

Every year in the Fall semester, Palms students and their families donate needed items, from pillowcases to clothes to backpacks, 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. Items need to be purchased new, for delivery to S.P.Y. We aren't using a drop-off box this year.

 Fall 2020 Donation Drive

November and December 2020

Purchase any needed items. Have them delivered to S.P.Y at 2469 Lincoln Blvd., Venice, CA 90291.

You can also send monetary donations to S.P.Y at 578 Washington Blvd. #398, Marina del Rey, CA 90292.

How to buy items for S.P.Y from Amazon

Due to covid restrictions, please do not drop off any items at Palms. Follow these steps instead:

  1. Optional: If you aren't already signed up for Amazon Smile, go to, log into your Amazon account, and set your charity to Friends of Palms Middle School.
  2. Shop at Amazon. Choose items from the ready-made S.P.Y Wish List page or anything else in the needed items PDF.
  3. Check out. When you are asked for the delivery address, don't choose your own address. Instead, choose Safe Place for Youth's Gift Registry Address if you see it in the address list. Otherwise, fill in 2469 Lincoln Blvd., Venice, CA 90291.
  4. Keep a record of your purchase for tax purposes. S.P.Y is a registered charity.
