Giving Back and Connecting with the Community
"It’s important for kids to be involved in the community and gain perspective from a young age about the needs of our neighbors and how good it feels to help others."
Every month at each one of our 50+ sites, children and staff connect with their community and give back.
Toy Drive & Crafts
Smiles were bright at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital after our holiday toy drive and ornaments, snow globes and holiday cards.
Food, fun and games give our Y Club families a chance to play together at our YMCA branch.
We brightened the holidays for four Y Club families by fulfilling their wish list through donations from our Y Club families.
Holiday Food Drive
We shared Thanksgiving boxes filled with food and gift cards for Y Club families in need.
One parent, moved to tears in relief, shared that her kids were sick resulting in missed work; our call came at just the right time.
We helped needy pets at the Powell PAWS animal shelter.
Our sites collected donations of old towels & blankets, shredded newspaper, food, treats and toys.
