For more than 109 years, YWCA programs and services have helped our community‚Äôs vulnerable populations. Our Senior Programs, in particular, empower and dignify our seniors through much more than a meal.  Many are isolated and have no family or support system. Our programs provide a lifeline allowing our senior to age in place.

Our Bundles bring joy to our neighbors. We provide four opportunities each year to host a drive or donate to our Bundles campaigns. Consider donating items or hosting a drive this year! All we ask is that all donated items be new, unwrapped, and delivered to our facility in Glendale.

How to Participate

Help support the seniors we serve! You may choose to host your own donation drive, collect requested items, and deliver them to our facility. We have made it easy to participate with a wish list from Amazon. See each campaigns Amazon wish list below to shop online and have Amazon deliver the items straight to our door. Or choose to sponsor a bundle and make a monetary donation.

“Three years ago, a chance visit to the YWCA Senior Center opened a new world for me. With no family or close friends in Arizona, I felt isolated and depressed. What struck me upon my arrival was the warm welcome I received and the joie de vivre I was missing. I felt this was the lifeline I needed.”
