Exercise Your Heart In More Ways Than One – We need your donations!

The Children’s Services Advisory Board of Manatee County has identified substance abuse, learning achievement gaps, behavioral health, bullying, and healthy lifestyles issues as their top priorities. The Manatee YMCA provides services and programs for these community issues and more, working for positive social change to move Manatee County forward.  In 2016 the Y gave out $622,266 in financial assistance, and we anticipate the need this year to be even greater.


To further support our mission and programs, the Manatee YMCA has opened a non-profit thrift store called the “YMCA Nifty Thrift Shop” in Palmetto, across from Walmart and behind McDonalds on 10th Street East.  Every dollar earned at the Thrift Shop will go to local children and families in need through programs such as gang prevention, leadership and mentoring, water safety and swim lessons, disease prevention programs, safe places for kids when school is out, and more.  Items donated to the Thrift Shop will also go to help victims of domestic violence, fires, floods, displacement, and others in need. With your support, the Y will be able to serve more families, children and seniors in our community.


We hope you will join us in our mission by donating items to any Manatee YMCA branch or our Thrift Store location.  You can also call (941) 212-4652  to arrange pickup for larger items.  Members will receive 10% off all purchases.


Items accepted include gently used items such as:

  • Clothes, accessories, jewelry
  • Household items
  • Furniture
  • Art work
  • Electronics that work and have all necessary cabling and power cords
  • Books, Albums, CD’s
  • Games
  • Toys
  • Gardening
  • Sporting goods
  • Boats, cars, motorcycles


The Y believes that progress in our community is only possible if we work together. Thank you for supporting the Y!
