YWCA York has been making a difference in our community for a very long time. We are not new to this work-we are true to this work!

We’ve discovered that when you “let your light shine” with authenticity, you attract others who share your passion and are willing to invest in the work you do with their time, energy, and financial support. Chances are you are one of these people. Please consider a gift to YWCA York during this holiday season. You can make a general donation or choose to directly support one of our impactful programs. THANK YOU!

YWCA York is grateful for in-kind donations of items our families can use while they’re healing from the trauma of domestic abuse. Unfortunately, due to limited available storage, we cannot accept all donations. Please check our donation wish list* to see our current needs. We appreciate your support and generosity.

*Please note that YWCA York only accepts donations of new items. We encourage you to take gently used clothing and household goods to St. Mary’s Thrift Shop at 26 E. College Avenue (717-812-9999), which provides our clients with vouchers to pick out free items.


Getting involved with YWCA York’s Annual Adopt-A-Family program is a fun, easy way to build team spirit in your workplace or community. Working together with your friends or peers to help a family in need will make the holiday season brighter for everyone.

The winter holidays are an especially difficult time for many families living in poverty, as parents feel pressure to create a festive atmosphere while still struggling to meet basic needs. Last year, our generous community adopted dozens of families in York who had experienced financial or emotional hardship. Many families were victims of domestic or sexual violence.

How does it work?

When you sponsor a family through YWCA York’s Annual Adopt-A-Family, you receive information before the end of November about the family, including first names, ages, sizes and gift ideas. You then shop for “your” family. By including a grocery store gift certificate with your gifts, you can help make a special holiday dinner for the family you have sponsored.

For more information, please contact us at 717-845-2631 or info@ywcayork.org .
