The holiday season is a time of joy and celebration for everyone, especially for our children. However, it can also be a time of added stress, particularly when it comes to providing gifts. That’s where the YWCA Cortland community comes in.

The Holiday Gift Assistance we provide is primarily for children ages 5-12 who are already enrolled in the YWCA Cortland Bridges for Kids mentoring program. These children receive priority and are the first to be put on a “Giving Tree” in the YWCA lobby.

Sign up for Gift Assistance (Deadline to sign up is 11/20/2023)

If your child is not currently enrolled in Bridges for Kids, you may sign them up now to receive this assistance and more throughout the year.

Bridges for Kids is a free youth program where the importance of education is stressed, as is healthy exercise, creative outlets, and new experiences such as attending museums and sporting events. The program provides monthly family activities for all enrolled families and assistance with school supplies, holiday dinners, and gifts.
