Holiday Giving Event

November 01, 2017


Holiday Initiative for the Community"

The Christmas season evokes thoughts of family togetherness and sharing. However for some local families the holiday season may not seem so bright. Hastings Lake YMCA is dedicated to serving our area families. Starting November 1st through December 3rd, Hastings Lake will have a decorated Christmas tree. On this tree there will be holiday ornaments. These are no ordinary tree ornaments; they are opportunities to donate to New Hope Community Church to help give toys to children for Christmas!!

Hastings Lake YMCA will be helping to collect toys for New Hope Community Church Community Closet from Nov. 1 to Dec. 3.  On December 9, 2017 the Community Closet will open to families and the kids will be able to pick a toy for Christmas.

Please help us collect toys by taking an ornament and purchasing a new unwrapped toy. You can drop all toys here at Hastings Y and we will be delivering to New Hope Community Church on December 4.  All donations may be placed in our present boxes located under our tree!


We are also collecting for New Hope Community Closet. We are asking for Diapers, Wipes or Toiletries for their cause going on now till December 8th.  New hope is looking to help 200 children who will be attending their holiday event on December 10th.  Please help make a child happy at Christmas.  New Hope is collection new unwrapped toys which can be dropped off at the Hastings Lake Y Welcome Center an put in the New Hope Community Present boxes.  For more information on any of these great causes please contact Rhonda Hoekenga at 847-410-5327 or
