Angel Tree

Partner with us to help a person in need enjoy the holidays

It’s easy! We have an Angel Tree set up in the lobby filled with angels and snowflakes. Angels are are families from the local elementary schools and snowflakes are foster children from the Children’s Home Society in Forsyth County.

You simply choose an angel or snowflake from the tree, purchase items from the person’s wish list, and return the items, unwrapped, by the deadline. Snowflakes are due back by December 8 so we can get the gifts to the foster home in time. Angels are due back by December 19. Please keep the snowflakes and angels attached to the unwrapped gifts. And feel free to go above and beyond what these kids have asked for!

It’s a simple way to bring Christmas cheer to a needy person, right here in Forsyth County!

Y Social Responsibility

Did you know the YMCA is one of the largest non-profits in the country? YMCAs serve over 21 million men, women, and children across the nation while continuing to be the largest provider of Childcare and Health/Wellness programs.

You know the Kernersville Family YMCA is so much more than just a place and we wanted to share with you some of the numbers.

From January 1-August 31 of 2014 the Kernersville Family YMCA provided over $82,000 in membership scholarships which served over 3,000 community members. The Kernersville Y also provided more than $54,000 in program scholarships (Swim Lessons, Sports, and Wellness Programs to name a few) which went to more than 1300 individuals. Over $10,000 has been given in scholarship to more than 80 military families at the Kernersville Y.

Season Information

Practices begin the week of December 1 and the season will wrap up mid-February. Practices and games will be held at the Kernersville Family YMCA and local middle school gyms. Some games could be played at other YMCAs.

In order to maintain a fair and fun experience for all kids involved, the YMCA will not be able to honor requests for kids playing in 8 year old divisions and up. The Y will do everything we can to ensure even teams heading into the season. Refunds will not be given for participants who withdraw due to unmet requests.
