The YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg proudly celebrates the 27th year of the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Christmas Program.

 

 

This signature event 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
  • 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 

      We are extremely grateful for your support and want you to know that every gift, 
      regardless of the amount, is important and appreciated.

The parents of more than 700 children visit the Y to collect
