Why are you asking for donations?

Due to Covid-19, the Armed Services YMCA is not able to coordinate food drives, or accept food donations for our pantry. We know there are lots of people who want to help, and this is currently the best way to do so. Additionally, monetary donations can be stretched farther due to our community partnership; and allow us to purchase the things our families need the most. 

Do I have to make a donation to be entered for the prize?

Absolutely not. If you want to give back to your community and making a donation is a way that works for you--we are grateful.  Whether you give or not, your chances of being the lucky winner are the same.

What is the deadline to register?

The deadline to register is close of business on June 30, 2020.

When will you choose a winner?

Registration will be open through the end of June. One July, we will pull the list of registrants and randomly select a winner. The winner will be notified no later than July 2.

I just want to donate to the Food Pantry. Can I do that?

Absolutely. We are increadibly grateful to the support of our community, and this is not exception. If you want to help provide food security for our military family, but don't want to be entered for the Getaway Giveaway package, you can choose the "Donation Only" option and enter any denomination of your choice into the "make a one-time donation" field.
