Date Details: November 24-December 19
Adopt-A-Family for Christmas- The Y will be partnering with Combined Community Services to adopt at least 10 families for Christmas. The wish list of the families will be divided up and you will have the opportunity to buy one or several gifts to help a family out this Christmas. Last year we were able to help 12 families with a total of 37 kids by giving 325 gifts.
Step 1. Please choose a tag off of our Christmas tree between November 24 and December 17 and bring it to the Welcome Center to register your name and phone number. The tag will list a number, the age and gender of the child you are shopping for, and one of the gifts they want. There will also be tags for gift certificates for groceries.
Step 2. Shop for the gift on your tag and gift wrap it. Attach the tag from the tree to the gift you purchased- loosely. We will be replacing that tag with the child's name.
Step 3. Bring your gifts to the Y by December 19. The Y staff will then deliver them to the families.
The Y has really changed my life. I have made many friends. I became friends with some of the staff who ask about me when I am not there and if everything is alright. The Y is a big part of my life. I feel like family and at home at the YMCA.
