Since 2004 the Armed Services YMCA has been blessed to partner with the readers of Woman’s Day Magazine to raise much needed funds to support military families during the Holidays.

The generosity and unwavering support shown from Woman’s Day readership has allowed the ASYMCA to purchase and distribute over 1600 pallets of toys (over 320,000 toys) as well as deliver over 25,000 baskets of food at Thanksgiving and Christmas to junior enlisted families in need.  In addition, to maximize the number of families served, the non-profit Armed Services YMCA donates all the staff time and overhead associated with running Operation Holiday Joy.

These young heroes and their families are voluntarily serving and sacrificing daily so we can continue to enjoy our freedoms and way of life.   The generosity shown from Woman’s Day readership demonstrates an appreciation for the sacrifices required of these dedicated defenders of our country. We look forward to making military life easier in 2013. Stay tuned to see how you can help.
