Each year, the Gateway Region Y hosts a holiday drive known as The Angel Tree Gift Drive that collects holiday donations from October to early December.

It is through the generosity of those who contribute to the annual Angel Tree Gift Drive that allows the Y to meet the needs of the youth and families throughout the St. Louis and Southwest Illinois regions during the holiday season.



1. On your next visit to the Y, take an angel gift tag from the Angel Tree display and sign the tag out at the Welcome Center.

2. If you are not planning on visiting the Y but still want to participate, call your local branch to sign out a gift tag over the phone. 

3. We understand that not everyone will be doing their holiday shopping in the stores. If you would like to support a child virtually, please make a monetary donation below and the Y will do the shopping for you!

Get your work and coworkers involved, as well as your children. It's never too early to teach social responsibility!

  • Lead by example
  • Involve your child when volunteering
