Neighor-To-Neighbor Christmas Program
Embracing the true meaning of social responsibility, our community brings the spirit of Christmas to 300 underserved families each year, while also strengthening and supporting them with additional complimentary programs and services throughout the year.
Each year, hundreds of donors, volunteers, and staff help provide the magic and nostalgia of the Christmas season for the underserved children of our community. Every dollar contributed directly benefits the children and families via the initiatives below.
Giving Joy All Year
- Each child receives a free full season of youth sports, aquatics, or dance
- Each child receives free back-to-school supplies twice annually
- Parents receive free participation in healthy living and financial literacy workshops
- Free guest passes to all YMCA family fun events
The Neighbor-to-Neighbor Christmas program features two events:
Tree Delivery Day
More than 100 volunteers join Y staff to deliver live Christmas trees, stands and decorations to 300 families in need.
Toy Box Night
The parents of more than 700 children visit the Y to collect free toys, books, games, bikes, and a $50 Publix gift card. Free childcare is offered for participating families so that parents may select toys in private to ensure Christmas morning is full of surprises.
