Bright Beginnings 2019

Event Start Date: July 23, 2019

Event Start Time: Dates/Times Vary

Event Location: All Branches

YMCA’s Bright Beginnings provides local children in need with clothing, backpacks and supplies that they’ll need when they return to school in the fall. This program would not be possible without your support.

  • Donate: $150 to sponsor a child. Your donation provides a local child with all of the clothing and supplies they need to return to school with confidence and excitement.
  • Fill a Backpack: Stop by your local YMCA branch and pick up and backpack to fill with supplies. Return it to your branch by the date specified on the supply list.
  • Volunteer: Donate a few hours of your time to shop with a child and give them an experience they will remember for years to come.
