Forget about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. At the Y, we're officially kicking off the holiday season on December 1, 2020 by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.


#GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday's goal is to inspire personal philanthropy, volunteerism, and to encourage giving during the holiday season.

Taking place December 1st - the day after CyberMonday - #GivingTuesday is a great way to contribute in honor of someone special on your Christmas gift list, or to a charity near and dear to YOUR heart.

On Tuesday, December 1st, please consider your gift to The Alleghany Highlands YMCA!

Just like many nationwide organizations, the Alleghany Highlands YMCA has been negatively affected by the Coronavirus. Your contributions this holiday season will help to offset the losses of memberships closed due to the virus.
