The Y Spreads Holiday Cheer Around the Metro Area
The Y Spreads Holiday Cheer Around the Metro Area

During the month of December, the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington’s volunteers and staff were able to spread holiday cheer all around the area.  Here’s a quick recap of 2 instances where our association was able to strengthen our connection to the community:

  • On 12/21/22 the Deloitte Consulting Team came over to the YMCA Calomiris Program Center to treat a few dozen kids to a fantastic holiday party.   At this winter workshop event, our kids made holiday cards, popcorn balls and lots of other holiday treats.  At the end of the event, the kids and the volunteers enjoyed a filling dinner together.  Thank you, Deloitte Consulting, LLP for your commitment to our youth and as always, thank you to the YMCA team for making everything run so smoothly!
  • On 12/22/2010, just before Santa made his pit stop in the metro area, our friends at Bank of America (730 15th ST NW, WDC) and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management (1152 15th ST NW, WDC) made holiday dreams come true for several local families.  Gifts were purchased for children, single mothers and in some cases, entire families.  YMCA staffers also found a way to give back by choosing local children from an “Angel Tree” that allowed them to make a child’s holiday wish come true.  All of this giving amounted to a bus filled with gifts that we were able to distribute to local families in need of a little extra holiday cheer!

The Y is committed to making an impact on the communities we serve and we thank everyone involved in the process.  For more information about volunteering with the YMCA or to learn about our programs and services feel free to visit us at www.ymcadc.org or give us a call at 202.232.6700
