Y Wishes – Holiday Donation Drives at the Y

Give Back with the Y this Season.

Help us create a happy holiday for families by participating in Y Wishes this season. The YMCA of Metro North is hosting its annual holiday charity drives to help make the wishes of children and families come true. Each branch invites the community into the Y to participate in our Angel Tree giving program. When you select an angel from the tree in our lobbies, you are sponsoring a child in our Y Academy programs and making their holiday dreams come true with gifts directly from their wishlist.

Our Y Academy program center and YMCA of Metro North Gymnastics Center are collecting toys, coats, and more this season to distribute to our neighbors in need. Drop off your donations in December and spread some holiday good will and cheer.
