Give the Gift of Giving Back With Our Virtual Holiday Giving Tree

It's the most wonderful time of the year, and what's more wonderful than giving back to your community? Shop our Amazon Wish List and join us in our Virtual Holiday Giving Tree to provide local families and kids with gifts of joy this holiday! As we shop for the holidays for our loved ones, there are children and families in our local communities that will be struggling through the holidays to pay rent or put food on the table—or to buy gifts for each other and their children, especially during these difficult times.

If you are able, please join us in our Virtual Holiday Giving Tree to provide local families and kids with the gift of joy by shopping our Amazon Wish List. For the Summit area community, the gifts are for families who are struggling with food insecurity, buying clothes and necessities for their children, and having a safe place to call their home.

Gifts will be mailed to the Summit YMCA, which will then be distributed to these families. Bring happiness to others this holidays season and we're sure you'll be on Santa's 'nice' list for your good deed!

In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.

Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need.
