DONATION DRIVES

2024 BACKPACK & SCHOOL SUPPLIES DRIVE

Drive Dates: July 22nd – August 2nd

The Y is excited to support our young learners with a new backpack full of supplies to ready them for the upcoming school year!

This year we are focusing our efforts to collect supplies for our 1,400+ After School Education & Safety (ASES) Program students. This program supports low-income families by providing a safe and educational after school environment through state grants and YMCA fundraising. The students receive homework assistance, and healthy snacks, and participate in STEM, leadership, sports, and other enrichment activities.

How it Works

  1. Fill a backpack with items from the suggested list below OR donate items towards filling a backpack.
  2. Drop off donations at your local YMCA health & wellness facility.
