Wheels for Kids Holiday Bike Collection

Have a neglected children's or adolescent bike taking up space in your garage? Even one that's a little broken? Donate it to WHEELS FOR KIDS, and make a local child's holiday bright! 

Danbury Youth Services is once again collecting used bicycles to be repaired and spruced up by our young volunteers, then donated to Santa's Workshop at Dorothy Day Hospitality House as gifts for local children.

We are seeking trikes and bikes (ideally 20" or smaller) to be dropped off at Rogers Park Middle School on Tuesday, Dec. 13, from 3-8 p.m. VOLUNTEERS ARE ALSO NEEDED at that time to help with repairs.

To volunteer, or for more information, please contact Joseph Dobbins at (860) 375-4376 or earnabike.dys@gmail.com. Otherwise, you can just drop off your bike on Dec. 13! 

Thanks for helping our kids to help others.

2016 Annual Holiday Appeal

Our annual appeal continues! Please help us reach our $15,000 goal before year's end!

Why give to DYS? What exactly do we do, anyway?

DYS provides programs that help at-risk kids and their families learn to lead positive, productive lives. Each year, we make a difference for approximately 600 kids--building self-esteem and improving academic performance through after-school programs, one-on-one mentoring, youth employment services and family counseling.

No one is turned away for inability to pay. Your donation helps us keep it that way.

For detailed information about our programs, and to see the many ways in which DYS builds stronger communities, please browse this website.

But first, click here, then SHARE this post! Your community will thank you!

Wine & Cheese Open House

In observation of #GivingTuesday, Danbury Youth Services invites the community to join us for a Wine & Cheese Open House on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Please stop in to our office at 91 West Street anytime between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. to meet members of our board, our staff and even some of the kids whose lives we've helped to change. Take a brief tour and look at some of the projects they've been working on as you enjoy a nibble or a sip.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. Please remember Danbury Youth Services this holiday season.

For more ways to get involved, visit www.givingtuesday.org.

We hope to see you here on Nov. 29!
