YMCA of Delaware Canned Food & Clothing Drive

Build Muscle and Community

As the weather gets colder, families across the state are on the lookout for winter clothing and non-perishable food to help get through the winter months safely.

The Y is stockpiling items to give back to those in need throughout our communities. We’ll be accepting winter hats, gloves, scarves, winter coats, canned food, and non-perishable food at all Y of Delaware branches from November 6th through November 24th.

Here’s your chance to donate and WIN!

  • Members: Donate 5 winter clothing or canned food items and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a one-year membership to the YMCA!
  • Non-Members: Donate 5 items and we’ll waive your joiner fee (up to $100) when you join the Y!

All items donated will go to distribution sites throughout the state of Delaware, including the Y Mission Market.

The Y has locations throughout the state, you can find a full list of our branches here.

*Membership raffle is for current and new members only. One entry for every 5 items donated including non-perishable food items, hats, coats, scarves, or gloves. Valid at all YMCA of Delaware locations November 6 – 24, 2023.
