As our effort to give back to the community, the SAY Swim Team will be hosting a community food drive to benefit SHIP of Summit (Summit.Helping.Its.People). SHIP provides various programs to assist the homeless and at-risk homeless – including a weekday breakfast/brown bag lunch program and a weekend fellowship dinner program. SHIP relies on the local community for food donations, financial support and receives no government funding. The SAY National team will be outside of Kings Supermarket in Summit on Sunday, December 19, 2021 collecting donations for SHIP during the holiday season.
When: Sunday, December 19 | 10:00 AM-2:00 PM

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.
