Our Y collects toys for tots during the month of December. The program’s goal is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children. To contribute, you can drop off a new, unwrapped toy in the lobby at our Y during the month of December. The Toys for Tots program is managed by the Toys for Tots Foundation, who works with community organizations to collect and distribute toys to children as a message of hope.
Families who are struggling with financial difficulties may not be able to afford holiday toys for their children, and kids living in poverty situations can feel left out of a wonderful and uplifting experience that many kids enjoy. Toys for Tots is able to deliver a powerful message of hope and generosity to kids in our community.
Our Y runs a membership promotion to support Toys for Tots. Bring in a new, unwrapped toy to a YMCA of Metro Detroit location by December 31st, and join the YMCA for only $25.
The YMCA has reduced the joiner fee to reward those who contribute to Toys for Tots and encourage greater participation. The savings is based on membership type, and standard monthly rates apply. Please click here to Join the Y.
