The West Suburban YMCA is holding a supply drive to benefit The Second Step, a Newton non-profit that supports individuals and families affected by domestic violence.

Now through Friday, January 17, 2020, the Y is collecting hygiene items, toiletries, and durable cold weather accessories in a box located in the lobby. The supply drive will lead up to a community-wide MLK Day of Service event, where volunteers will organize the items into "blessing bags" for families. Items we are collecting are listed below.
