49TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS SALE
In 2020, not even the pandemic was able to prevent the West Cook YMCA from hosting our 48th Annual Christmas Tree Sale. It took the global supply chain crisis and its impact to our tree farmers to stop this nearly 50 year tradition. Regrettably, we will not be hosting our 49th annual Christmas Tree Sale, which over the nearly 5 decade tradition has resulted in close to 1 million dollars in scholarships provided to our community. Although the tree sale is not possible, we still can come together to support our local community members by consider making a donation in lieu of a Christmas tree purchase. If you have purchased a Christmas tree in the past, we hope you will continue your contribution to the West Cook YMCA's Annual Support Campaign in lieu of purchasing a Christmas tree and provide much needed scholarships to our neighbors.
West Cook YMCA Annual Christmas Sale Tradition
An Oak Park holiday tradition since 1972, the Christmas Tree Lot at the West Cook YMCA opens the day after Thanksgiving; featuring fresh Christmas trees, garlands, and wreaths that are sure to add a festive look to your home or office. 100% of the proceeds are used to benefit the community through scholarships at the West Cook YMCA and a portion of all purchases are tax-deductible.
The proceeds go to support our Annual Support Campaign. The generosity of our members and community ensures access to the Y through membership scholarships and programs to help make our community equitable for all. Your support helps provide opportunities for 1,300 individuals to achieve their health and wellness goals so that they reach their full potential.
The West Cook YMCA has served our community for 120 years and we are looking forward to continuing the legacy of strengthening the foundations of community by ensuring the Y is always accessible. Together, we’re accomplishing even more to help our neighbors be their best selves through better health and wellness. Thank you. You can have confidence that people in this community will benefit for months to come as a result of your support.
