Social Services · Eden Area YMCA
At your Y, training, resources and support to empower our neighbors to make change, bridge gaps and overcome obstacles everyday is what we do together. We do this so that everyone has the chance to learn, grow and thrive. Programs include:
Throughout the year, we gather and distribute a wide variety of necessities like clothes, diapers, bedding, bikes, toaster ovens, tables, and chairs in a discreet manner, respecting the privacy of those in need. We partner with multiple retail stores (Bed, Bath & Beyond, Joann Fabrics Target and more) to disperse of their clearance merchandise, product returns etc., to ensure that those in our community are receiving what they need. Over the course of the last year, we secured and distributed approximately $1,000,000 in product donations.
