Angel Tree

Help local families in need by purchasing a gift for our Angel Tree.

Each angel on our tree indicates a gift that is needed at the Mathews Christmas Shop. Select as many angels as you wish and bring your UNWRAPPED gifts back to the Y by December 7th. We will deliver all the gifts to the Christmas Shop, which will benefit over 100 local families.

Our after school clubs provide a safe and nurturing environment—giving parents peace of mind. Your child won’t want to miss out on the FUN and parents you won’t want your child to miss out on the exciting activities. Registration is on-going.
