Date: November 24th-December 18th
Location: Binghamton & West Family Y
The holiday season can be a wonderful time of the year for most, but for others it can be a very lonely time. Thanks to the generosity of our members we have been able to give each resident who lives in our Supportive Housing program a Christmas gift each year. The residents and the housing staff are truly in awe of how amazing and supportive the Y members are each year.
A Holiday party is thrown for the men in the dorm, where a holiday dinner, snacks, music are provided in addition to having the gifts passed out.
The men are often brought to tears when they receive their gifts. Many do not have family and think of the YMCA as their family and are so appreciative that they are not forgotten on the holidays.
If you would like to purchase a gift for one of the residents, please take an ornament tag off the Angel Tree located in the lobby. Please return the gift with the tag attached to the membership desk. We ask that all gifts are brought in by December 18th.
