Taylor Family Y: Holiday Gift Drive

Holiday Gift Drive

The Taylor Family and Northwest Cary YMCAs invite you to join us in creating a brighter holiday for children and families. We are accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys, gift cards and wrapping materials (paper, tape, ribbon and bows). Beginning Monday, November 27, you can select a tag off of the tree in our lobbies and in the Taylor pool house. 

View our gift guide for ideas.

Please drop off all donations to either branch by Tues., Dec. 14.

Making the Holidays Bright: Holiday Gift Shop

Your donations of toys, clothing and educational items are for children from birth through age 18. As toys and items are collected, we transform our YMCA gyms and spaces into holiday shops for families.

Parents can personally select new toys, books, clothes and more for their children. This ensures parents choose gifts for their child and helps parents with items they may otherwise not be able to afford.

We hope to help provide families with a Christmas their children will always remember.

Get Involved

We will need volunteers to help organize the shops, wrap presents or help parents. This is a great way to give back and get in the holiday spirit! The Holiday Gift Shop event will be Sat., Dec. 16 at the Taylor Family Y from 4 - 8 p.m.
