Social Responsibility

The YMCA believes our communities are strongest when everyone is included and has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We welcome and connect people of all generations, backgrounds and perspectives, and we’re committed to addressing issues that people face to create positive change. We work to provide kids, families and communities with the resources and opportunities they need to learn, grow and thrive. That’s why we offer a range of programs and services to meet the unique needs of our community.

grandparents raising grandchildren

In partnering with the Bloomsburg Salvation Army Service Center (BSASC), the GRG drive aims to show appreciation to grandparents raising their grandchildren in Columbia & Montour counties each Christmas season. There is about a month of nominations in November, then in December, the Bloomsburg Y has a “Grandparents Angel Tree” for members to pick off and shop for the nominated grandparents.
This drive runs every Christmas season.
