Family time at the Y is about giving families as a unit, and as individuals, the opportunities to deepen relationships, develop new skills and interests, improve their health and well-being, and connect to the community.

Christmas Program

Benefitting Children & Families in Need!

Each year, the Moshannon Valley YMCA ensures that hundreds of children from our community have gifts to open on Christmas morning, warm clothes for the winter, and a nice holiday meal to eat.

The holiday season can create added mental and financial stress for many families who are already struggling
to make ends meet. At the Y, we believe in supporting and giving back to our neighbors, and that’s what our Christmas program is all about.

Every year, we are overwhelmed by the support of our community for this program. We hope we can count on you again this year. If you would like to help a family in need, you can make a financial contribution, or choose to sponsor a family. We receive need/wish lists for the families to use as a guide.

Check in at the YMCA in mid-November if you would like to sponsor a child or family. Monetary donations for the Christmas program are accepted anytime, and will be used to purchase additional items and food for the families.

If you or a family you know could benefit from our Christmas program, or you would like more information about how you can help, please contact Judy at the YMCA (342-0889) by early December.
