Donate canned goods, non-perishable foods and gift cards to supply families in-need with a healthy, bountiful Thanksgiving.
Provide a wonderful holiday to child in need. We will have a Christmas tree filled with angels in our branch lobby. To make that child’s Christmas wish become a reality, simply take an angel, purchase and bring that gift “unwrapped” to the front desk. We will wrap all gifts and distribute them to that child in need. Please deliver all gifts to us by December 19th.

Man 2 Man Mentoring
YMCA Potomac Overlook launched an onsite mentoring program in March 2014! Designed to give middle school boys a positive role model, students will be paired with high schoolers for sessions twice a week through the end of the school year. Mentor and mentee pairs will cover:
- Academic achievement
- Life skills development
- Health and nutrition
The high school students will receive a monthly stipend and help mentees to:
- Aspire to education excellence
- Prepare for higher education and employment
- Improve academic performance
- Increase knowledge of general health practices
If you have a high school male student or middle school student who would benefit from this program, please contact our Associate Executive Director, Lucresha Murphy via email
. Look forward to more information regarding an information session to be held later this month!
