Be A Santa To A Senior at Eastside YMCA

Eastside Family Y
11/17/22 - 12/20/22
VIEW

Help us provide holiday cheer to area seniors who are lonely, in financial need, and unlikely to receive any gifts this holiday season.

You can find tags for these seniors on the giving tree in the lobby of the Eastside YMCA. These tags include first name of the participating senior, as well as gift preferences and sizes, if applicable. Return the unwrapped gift(s) and tag/bulb to the Eastside Y by December 12th. (Gift cards should be given to the Front Desk so they may be kept in a locked office until picked up by Home Instead.) Gifts will be wrapped by volunteers before giving to recipients.

Some notes:

When buying gift cards, any store or restaurant with a local location is fine.

Gift baskets – if not specified, use your discretion. Can be snacks, cookies, coffee, personal care items, whatever you’d like.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Foster Erie Placement Bag Drive

Glenwood Park
11/16/22 - 12/14/22
VIEW

The Y is partnered with Foster Erie to provide placement bags to children 0-18 years of age. Placement bags will be given to each child at the time of placement into foster care. It is important to provide the child with a good quality bag full of new items they can call their own. When receiving a bag, the hope is that each child will be reassured of their worth and value.

Please help us by selecting an ornament from our Giving Tree in the Fireside Lounge and returning it to the Welcome Center by December 14th.
