Supply Drive for Moms Helping Moms Foundation

 

The Summit Area YMCA will be hosting a Supply Drive for the Moms Helping Moms Foundation, an organization that strives to provide underserved families in New Jersey with equitable access to the essentials they need to provide their children with a safe and healthy start. The Y will be hosting a collection drive for the months of February and July to collect donations of essential baby items from families who no longer needed them and pass them on to families who do. Donations will be collected and given to the Moms Helping Moms Foundation, whom will distribute these donated items to families in the NJ area. Together, we are working to end diaper need and fight childhood poverty in New Jersey.

Donation drop-off bins are located at the Berkeley Heights YMCA & Summit YMCA.

SUMMIT AREA YMCA

BERKELEY HEIGHTS YMCA | SUMMIT YMCA | THE LEARNING CIRCLE YMCA

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.
