Books or Amazon gift cards can be donated in person at the YWCA front desk on January 18th 19th, and 20th.
The drop-off originally scheduled for MLK Day was canceled due to severe weather. 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the  Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration scheduled for January 17 will be in the form of prerecorded clips of the program to be released during Black Heritage Month (February). Details will be forthcoming.

Have You Been Surveyed? 

The YWCA Advocacy Committee is surveying the community’s efforts to provide support in the following areas: eliminating racism, empowering women, and the emotional well-being of all.

We are gathering information regarding programs that are presently being offered and programs that may need to be offered. Your feedback is important because it helps us determine what programs and services from which our community can most benefit.
