Thank you for celebrating the spirit of giving

Yadkin Family YMCA

The Yadkin Family YMCA, Collide Church, Maplewood Baptist Church, Mt. Carmel Friends Church, Peace Haven Baptist Church, Love Out Loud Yadkin and Yadkin County Schools are sponsoring Christmas Blessings. This year we are serving more than 50 families (140 students) from Yadkin County Schools. On December 10 from 8:30am-3:30pm parents will be able to shop at Collide Church for their kids. Parents will have their own personal shopper to help them pick out the perfect gift for their kids based on their wish lists. Next they will wrap their presents at the gift-wrapping station. Volunteers will help load their gifts into cars while parents are able to enjoy hot cocoa and snacks. In partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, the families we serve this year will also receive a Holiday meal pack to bring home. 

We are so grateful for all of our community partners who are volunteering to help serve these families. 

You can help this holiday season! Donate to our Annual Impact Fund at and designate “Christmas Blessings.” $100 will sponsor 1 child. Questions? Please contact Scott Spillman at


Statesville Family YMCA

Homelessness is a real problem in our country, and unfortunately Statesville is no exception. The YMCA Bridge Academy helps our local homeless families with free After School Academy, Summer Day Camp, sports programs, Safety Around Water drowning prevention, anti-hunger initiatives, and more. We’d like to give these families a special Christmas but WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We’d like to provide each family with new bedding, washcloths, towels, cookware or  dinnerware, and hygiene products. For the children, we are planning to provide a new coat, toboggan, gloves, an outfit or two, shoes, socks, and underwear, plus a toy or two. To save money we’ll be buying in bulk, so we’re asking for monetary donations.


Any amount helps!
$50 buys toys
$100 buys clothes and shoes
$300 buys home goods
$500 supports the whole family

If you’d like to help these local families, please donate online at (be sure to designate Statesville) or at the branch.
