Give Back to Your Community this Holiday Season!

The Y’s Virtual Giving Tree offers you a way to support families and individuals to reach their potential.

DONATING IS SIMPLE. CLICK HERE

Click a tag below and donate online today.  Your donation will go directly to providing access to important Y Programs for people of all ages and abilities.

There are suggested amounts for each program, but make a donation for any amount that’s right for you. A charitable receipt will be issued for donations of $25 or more.

Y Programs improve health, build connection, prevent social isolation, and develop skills and confidence.

GIFT CARD DONATIONS

The Y welcomes non-perishable food items and gift card donations which will directly benefit young families and youth at risk in the Y’s Pandora Youth Apartments and Young Moms Programs.
These items are greatly needed during the holiday season and throughout the year and are shared with waitlisted clients and community members in need. Hampers will be set up at both the Westhills Y and Downtown Y branches – just check with a Y staff member for location.  If you have questions about donating a gift card please email the Y.
