Charitable Donation Baton Rouge


Each year, the YMCA of the Capital Area provides Christmas gifts to children in need. The gifts are collected through community members who choose an angel (child) and purchase a gift. 

All YMCA locations have angels available if you would like to sponsor a child this Christmas. 

Please purchase a gift between $15 - $20 and return it, unwrapped, along with the angel to any of the 7 YMCA of the Capital Area locations. Gifts are due back to the Y by Dec. 10. 

If your company would like to host a collection drive to benefit our angel tree, please let us know so we can add you as a sponsor to our website. Please send your company logo to 

If you would like to apply to have your child sponsored as one of our angels, please fill out the online application below. 

*We are no longer accepting applications*
Applications will be reviewed and we will help as many children as possible based on need and availability of donations. We will contact applicants who are approved to receive assistance by Dec. 5.
Gifts will be distributed the week of December 13 - 17. Information will be emailed to approved recipients. 

Thank you for your continued support of our Angel Tree program!
