Family YMCA of Black Hawk County


For over a decade, members of the YMCA have donated the ingredients and finances to prepare a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
In years past members are encouraged to participate in person and shop for items on our Thanksgiving Grocery List.  However, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission,  we will be modify our approach to an online donation and no individual shopping. The collected money will be distributed to provide the same grocieries accross all prepared baskets including a 8lb turkey.


This year we are seeing a tremendous need to broaden this program for more members who may not normally prepare a full meal every year and can not financially support such a masterful feat.  With COVID-19 cases on the rise, donating to the Thanksgiving Baskets will provide a safe opportunity for families to celebrate independently and safely.

Please consider donating in celebration of Thanksgiving!
