Community Collections

The YMCA believes our communities are strongest when everyone is included and has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We welcome and connect people of all generations, backgrounds and perspectives, and we’re committed to addressing issues that people face to create positive change.



Erie Zoo Collection

Eastside Family Y, Glenwood Park
6/1/23 - 6/30/23


The mission of the Erie Zoo is to nurture an appreciation of the world and provide the community with meaningful educational and recreational experiences that foster a greater sense of awareness, stewardship and conservation of animals and plants. We are so fortunate in Erie to have a Zoo of this caliber, but as with all non-profits, the Erie Zoo is in need of donations to continue its mission.

During the month of September, please help us support the Erie Zoo. We are accepting donations of used and new items, lists can be found here Zoo-New-and-Used-Items


Lists are also available at the Eastside YMCA’s Front Desk. Items donated can be left in our donation box in the lobby. We are also accepting monetary donations, or you can donate online at Erie Zoo Donations

Your help, as always, is appreciated!
