Thanksgiving Baskets 🦃

Annually, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine provides hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to families in our community through the generous support of our members and supporters. Help us feed our neighbors!

Thank you for your support! for the program this year! Between November 1 and November 10, you have helped supply over 500 baskets to the community.  

  • Registered participants will be notified by phone or email the week of November 13 when their bag is ready to be picked up.

Holiday Angels 🎁

Help make the holidays a little brighter for families in need this year through our Holiday Angels program. Visit your preferred branch to learn more. Each branch will have a holiday tree in the lobby with adopted angels. Let's fill the trees!

Donate Between November 6  – December 4

  • To donate, visit the front desk at your local YMCA of Greater Brandywine location. 
  • For those looking for support, unfortunately, the deadline to apply for the program has passed. This program relies on community sponsors and at this point, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate your request.  Please contact your local branch to inquire about potential space remaining for Holiday Angels. 
  • Registered participants will be notified by phone or email the week of Monday, December 11 when their gifts are ready to be picked up.
