Giving and Donation Opportunities

Your donations directly impact our community.

YOU can ensure every child in our community has the tools they need to succeed this year! Our monthly drives give us an opportunity to give back to our community! Kids in our community need our help more than ever, and with your help we are able to impact their lives with fun, and essential events. Help be a champion for a child in need!

Food Drive

One in six people in the Mahoning Valley faces food scarcity.  The YMCA of Youngstown partners with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Mahoning County every year to help provide much-needed food to our community. 

You can help by donating nonperishable food at one of our many donation bins at both the Davis and Central branches.
