Presents of Peace

Tuesday, November 13, 2018
Each year, the A.E. Finley YMCA partners with our community to help make the holidays special for all. Join us and our neighbors to provide a Christmas shopping experience for families who are currently enrolled in our outreach programs. 

Qualifying families can come to the Y and shop for toys, clothing and books at the Presents of Peace Shopping Celebration on Sunday, Dec. 16. The event will take place in the Finley YMCA Gym from 1 - 3 p.m. The day will be full of shopping, wrapping, treats and fellowship! 

There are two ways you can help:

  1. Donate a gift to Presents of Peace by choosing an item from the decorated tree in the Finley lobby. The tree will go up by Friday, November 23 and members can begin to take items off the tree at that time. All items selected from the tree will need to be returned to Finley Y (unwrapped) by Wednesday, Dec. 12.  We're partnering with another local non-profit, Cleaning UP, to help provide gifts for each of our families. Here's a list of the types of gifts we'll be looking for:

    • Toothpaste
    • Toothbrushes
    • Laundry detergent
    • Hand Soap
    • Body wash / Bar soap
    • Deodorant
    • Lysol spray / Lysol Wipes / All Purpose Spray
    • Shampoo / Conditioner 
    • Toilet Paper
    • Feminine products
    • Diapers
    • Laundry baskets
