The ASYMCA of Alaska believes that all service members and their families deserve support, enrichment, recognition, security, independence, and opportunities to improve their family bond, family resiliency, and health/wellness. To aid in our efforts, we provide over 20 programs and services designed to directly address the needs of our military and their families as identified by military leadership. This arsenal of programs help to alleviate stress, assist with life challenges, and increase the morale and welfare of our nation’s heroes, enabling them to better focus on their mission of service.
Support our current critical Operation.
During the month of December the Armed Services YMCA will send a gift shipment to Alaska-based service members deployed during the holidays. These heroes have to spend the holidays overseas, away from their family—this season let’s show them how much they mean to our community! You can choose to donate funds toward care packages that we will shop, wrap and ship on your behalf, or you can commit to creating care packages that we will pick up and ship for you.
Access our current top support programs.
This program provides children of deployed service members a quilt or pillow with pictures of the deployed service member and the family. This program is designed to comfort and help children during the deployment. We have wonderful volunteer quilters who meet once-a-month to sew these quilts and pillows.
