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
You don’t have to donate money to make a difference at the Y – 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 brought to the Y are eligible for a tax deduction as well 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!
