Mentoring Program Holiday Gift Assistance

Every year, Bridges for Kids, a service of our Mentoring program, helps families provide holiday gifts to over 150 children, and this year, YOU can help make the holidays merry and bright for local families experiencing trying times in three different ways:

  1. You can stop by YWCA Cortland Lobby to pick a child’s name off of our giving tree and provide them with gifts this holiday season.
  2.  You can purchase gifts on our Bridges for Kids Holiday Assistance Amazon wish list. Make sure you use AmazonSmile and Amazon will donate a portion of the proceeds to YWCA Cortland at no extra cost to you. Click to find out more about AmazonSmile.
  3.  You can make a donation to the YWCA Mentoring program. With funds raised, we will make purchases on Amazon and/or provide gift cards to families. This holiday season is going to be difficult for everyone, but even more so for struggling families who could use the joy that the holidays can bring.

Please make your gift by December 20.
