TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Sunday, December 8, 2019 | 2pm - 7pm
There are a number of families in our community who are in need. The Y's Men Benefit Event is a way for you to help families in Wayne County this Christmas, and throughout the year. There are many different ways for you to participate!
The Goldsboro Family YMCA works with agencies such as the Boys and Girls Club of Wayne County, Wayne Uplift Domestic Violence Program, Wayne County Public Schools and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base just to name a few. These agencies identify local families in need who don't receive assistance from anyone else at Christmas time. The families will gather at the Y and we will have volunteers to take the parent/guardian shopping, while other volunteers help to entertain their children.
You can help families by donating money or gift cards. ALL donations go directly towards supporting these families. You can also volunteer on Y's Men night (Sunday, December 8th) to take a parent/guardian shopping for food, supplies and Christmas gifts. We also have opportunities to help with the children while we entertain and feed them here.
In 2018 we served over 80 families and dispersed approximately $35,000.00 in contributions. Between gift cards, the meal, shoes, food and bicycles, and the Y memberships, it was approximately $81,600 in assistance. We were able to support 32 families throughout the year as well. This is our 19th year holding this outreach program, and to date we have assisted over 1,320 families and provided over $544,600 in support!
