This month in Y Guides - Outdoor Living Skills! At your monthly Circle meeting, try any or all of these fun activities inspired by our theme.

Halloween Candy

Service Learning

  • Just after Halloween, most YMCA facilities in King County host Candy Buy Back events. Invite your Circle to donate their candy to the Y in exchange for a prize. Candy will be sent directly to troops stationed overseas through USO Northwest.
  •  Host a “Socktober” event and collect new, warm socks of all sizes to donate to a family crisis center or homeless shelter.
