Strengthening Our Military Family      |      Armed Services YMCA Hawai`i


Upcoming Events




Every year during the holiday season the Armed Services YMCA Hawai`i collects and distributes generous donations of food, commissary gift cards, and toys to military families in need through Operation Holiday Joy. Donations of food and gifts are collected by community partners, such as military units, businesses, civic clubs, church groups and schools, and dropped off to our offices in November and December where teams of volunteers prepare Operation Holiday Joy baskets full of delicious food and presents. The baskets are then picked up by a command representative and gifted to military families who are experiencing extreme hardship or financial difficulty.

Learn more about Op Holiday Joy or sign-up for a basket here:
