YWCA Kalamazoo needs your help this holiday season! As the holiday season approaches, the families served by YWCA Kalamazoo (over 600 clients a year) rely on the generosity of donors to make their holiday special.

Here is how you can help:

  • Assist-A-Family: Your Family, Business or Organization can assist a specific family with holiday gifts. Gender, age and size information will be provided along with their list of suggestions for gifts.
  • Holiday Gifts: YWCA Kalamazoo accepts donations of NEW items for women and children (all ages), appropriate to be given as holiday gifts, to those served by YWCA Kalamazoo. (See below for a list of suggested items). 
  • Everyday Use: In addition to assistance for the holidays, the following items are needed for everyday use: diapers, wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, towels (bath, hand, washcloths), body wash, and shampoo.
  • Volunteer: YWCA Kalamazoo needs volunteers to assist at the Holiday Party in December. This may include sorting and restocking gifts, passing out treats, or watching children while the parent “shops.”

For questions or more information on how you can help during the holidays, please contact Kellie Swikoski at (269) 345-5595 or email kswikoski@ywcakalamazoo.org.
