A great way to help the Harrison County YMCA is for individuals, families and companies to make in-kind donations for a variety of items that we need on a daily basis. These donations of materials and/or services will allow us to continue providing quality programs and services for our members and guests.
Please take a minute to look over some of the items in need below, which you can provide in-kind goods or services. In-kind donations have great merit beyond a tax benefit, as the donors are always acknowledged for their service to the community. Possible contacts for volunteer support are also welcome.
1. Amazon Smile
2. Donate Material Goods
In-kind donations are always much appreciated – in fact, we can almost always use things for certain areas. Below you’ll find a list of things that you can donate, either gently used or brand new. All donations given to the Y are eligible for a tax deduction since we are a charitable organization.
Your donations will help us transform lives and will make a difference in our community. Thank you for considering the Y!
