Y Gift Cards: Cheerful Giving for Healthy Living
‘Tis the season for telling your loved ones how much you care! And what better way than to give them a positive Y experience? A gift card to the Y can help a child to learn how to swim, make new friends at day camp, or hit that first home run. A gift card may also help your loved ones try new classes or get started with a membership at the Y.
And don’t forget about yourself! If you have enough holiday sweaters and popcorn tins, consider asking for a Y gift card to use toward membership, child care or classes.
Visit the Service Center at any of our 17 Y locations to purchase a Y Gift Card. Happy giving!
* YMCA Trout Lodge and Camp Lakewood honors its own unique gift certificates. To order by phone with credit card, call either 314-241-9622 or 573-438-2154.
