Contributing to Community Well-Being

Help the Community

Whether donating non-perishable food items to support those facing food insecurity, providing gently used sports equipment to empower aspiring athletes, or contributing games and puzzles to the Teen Oasis Center, every donation makes a difference. Additionally, your time and talents as a volunteer further enhance the well-being of individuals and families in our community. Explore meaningful ways everyone can contribute:


No gift is too small! Check out the list of non-perishable hearty food items below. All donated items should be unopened and not expired. Drop off your contributions in the Sewickley Valley YMCA lobby or place them inside one of our Free Mini Pantries. During the winter months, avoid glass jars in pantries.

To support those facing food insecurity, the YMCA is always in need of:

  • Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits, and vegetables
  • Pasta, rice, whole grains
  • Instant rice and potatoes
  • Dry cereal
  • Instant oats
  • Hearty soup
  • Crackers/pretzels
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Pancake mix, syrup
  • Stock/broth
  • Condiments
  • Baking staples: sugar, flour, salt, pepper, honey, oil, etc.


Empower aspiring athletes in our programs by donating gently used sports equipment. Your contributions, from soccer balls to tennis rackets, play a crucial role in creating active and healthy lifestyles.

Additionally, support the OASIS Teen Center by contributing games and puzzles. Your generous donations not only provide a space for teens to unwind but also create opportunities for them to connect and engage in positive recreational activities.


Volunteering at the Sewickley Valley YMCA is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. It is also a great way to build relationships and learn new skills. It’s also an opportunity to help those in need and gain a sense of purpose. Be a part of our mission and help us make a positive impact in our community!

Your support goes a long way to creating a thriving and connected community.
