Your Y-Inspired Gift Guide

Shopping Struggles? The Y is here to help!

Some people are tricky to shop for – and we’re here to help! We asked our members and staff what their “must-haves” are for coming to the Y. Whether you are shopping for a lap swimmer or pickleball player, we have some great suggestions!

But it gets better! When you choose YMCA of Greater Rochester as you shop through Amazon Smile, a portion of your purchase is donated to our Annual Campaign. We are proud to provide scholarships for our memberships and programs, and your generous support makes it possible.

By shopping through Amazon Smile, you know that you’re buying with a good cause in mind.

We asked some of our members what their “must have” item is when they come to the Y. Below are some of their favorites, to help with your shopping list. Happy shopping!
