YSP Virtual Giving Tree

Help make the wish of a child or family come true this holiday season. giving-tree

We proudly provide services to 95 families across all our programs.  Help one family (or more than one) by purchasing one or all of the items within these baskets especially designed with our York Street moms and children in mind.

Often when our families move in they have no more than the clothes on their backs. And when they move from here to their own apartment, they do not have the disposable income needed to set up a new home. The collection of items to make up baskets of kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, cleaning, laundry, or personal care necessities is something that will make a tremendous impact in their everyday lives.  Your effort to collect items from the suggested lists will allow us to ensure our families start out on solid footing.  Additionally, gift cards in increments of $25 are always welcomed to allow a mother to purchase something surprisingly whispered in her ear just days before Christmas.

Email or call Nelly Tabora at 201-451-8225 or ntabora@yorkstreetproject.org if you would like more information about this holiday drive. To avoid duplicate donation drives, we ask that you coordinate with Nelly to best meet the needs (not wants) of our families.  Thank you!
