Each day gets a little cooler and brings us a little closer to the Holiday Season!  

If you or your organization would like to sponsor a YWCA client's wish list, please click here to download a Holiday Giving sponsorship form! 

Each year, the YWCA Greater Harrisburg partners with local individuals and organizations to support hundreds of families in need during the holidays season for our Holiday Giving Program.

Residents and clients in need sign up for the program by submitting a wish list. 2023’s wish lists will only consist of one need and one wish. Cheer sponsors then adopt the client’s wish list. It’s the most festive time of the year at the YWCA!

Last December, you helped us brighten the season for more than 500 families and we are hoping to hold another successful and safe Holiday Giving program. 

This year, once again we will be:

  • Limiting the number of items on each client’s wish list. 
  • Contactless delivery options: We encourage Cheer Sponsors to participate at a level that is comfortable for them. A need or wish for a client may be purchased online through Amazon and sent directly to the YWCA! It’s easy and convenient! Directions are listed below.
  • And finally, if you are delivering gifts to the YWCA, we ask that gift bags are included so items may be transferred from the Cheer sponsor to the case manager seamlessly.

We LOVE our volunteers! We are bringing back volunteer gift wrapping! Join us with your friends or coworkers for a fun, festive volunteer opportunity! 

We can't wait to bring holiday cheer to our clients and community from December 11-15!

Please refer to the directions below when purchasing gifts through Amazon.

When purchasing, select “this item is a gift.” Please remember to add the client number in the gift message section for each item. Without the client number, we won’t know which client you are sponsoring.

Gifts should be sent to:

Holiday Giving - YWCA Greater Harrisburg

1101 Market Street

Harrisburg PA 17103

If dropping off gifts in person, gifts MUST be in a gift bag with tissue paper, with the client number on the bag.

Another way to get involved is by sponsoring items on our general wish list. These items are distributed to the women and children that arrive in shelter over the holidays. Our general wish list can be found on Amazon here!
