The Giving Tree
The Y’s Giving Tree initiative supports YMCA families undergoing financial difficulties by providing gifts for children during the holiday season. Our goal is to assist members and alleviate some stress that comes from economic hardship and allow families to enjoy this special time of year together.
Thanks to those who donated, we were able to grant wishes for 113 families in 2022!
How you can help
This season, help make a child’s holiday a little brighter by participating in the Y’s 2023 Giving Tree initiative. It’s simple:
- The tree filled with wishes is set up in the YMCA lobby.
- Take a tag from the tree. Each tag holds a child’s wish!
- Purchase a gift. Their wish is noted on the back of each tag.
- Return the unwrapped gift to the Y by December 8th. Be sure to attach the tag to the gift!
Can’t make it to the Y to pick up a tag? You can still participate! We will create “virtual tags” so you can select the wishes you will fill online. We’ll post a link here when the virtual tags are available. Please note – the gifts will still need to be delivered to the Y no later than December 8th.
