Join us as we usher in the giving holidays with our annual Angel Tree!
From now until December 20th, the YWCA community will band together to create a holiday experience for families of our Motherlove, Getting Ahead, Early Learning Program, and Empowerment Child Care programs. The Angel Tree was assembled by members of our very own Women’s Empowerment Group. This year we decided to let you know exactly how to get the perfect gifts as the ornaments hold very specific details as to what programs, and even details on the family, to help guide your decisions. Due to each program having different happenings going on the turn-in date will differ:
How it works:
- Take an ornament off the tree to provide a YWCA family with their holiday wish
- Each ornament represents a different YWCA family
- Return gift to the YWCA under the tree in the lobby by the date on the ornament
- Please attach the ornament to the gift
MotherLove (ML) Return date: December 13th
YWCA’s MotherLove program supports pregnant and parenting teens throughout Buncombe County. Our goals are to help young parents to stay in school and graduate, access higher education and vocational training, develop the skills and knowledge needed to become strong parents and delay another teen pregnancy.
Getting Ahead (GA) Return Date: December 18th
YWCA’s Getting Ahead program aims to provide financial empowerment for low-income women of all ages and backgrounds to make choices that positively impact themselves, their families and their community.
Early Learning Program (ELP) Return Date: December 20th
YWCA’s Early Learning Program provides 5-star childcare for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. Our experienced and compassionate teachers not only provide exceptional care for your little ones, but they also prepare young children to succeed cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally.
Empowerment Childcare (ECC) Return Date: December 20th
The YWCA provides up to 12 hours of free childcare per week for parents who are in transition, continuing their education, accessing social services, or looking for employment. ECC works closely with the Family Justice Center, Buncombe County Health and Human Services, A-B Tech, Green Opportunities, and Mary Benson House.
