About the Program

This signature program provides 300 underserved families, and over 700 children, with a traditional Christmas - including a live tree, ornaments, holiday dinner, books, bikes, and toys.

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, cultural arts or dance
  • Parents receive free participation in healthy living and financial literacy workshops
  • Free guest passes to all YMCA family fun events

The parents of more than 700 children visit the Y to collect free toys, books, games, bikes, and a 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.
