Tiffin Community YMCA

Community Programs


We are celebrating over 60 years of continued service! Y-Wives is a women's organization whose purpose is to stimulate growth and broaden interest among members through fellowship, informal education and service projects for the YMCA. The organization was founded November 12, 1952. Membership is open to all women in the community, Our biggest project is the Y-Wives Holiday Extravaganza, held every year, the second Saturday in November, at the Tiffin YMCA. Visit the website at http://y-wives.com/ for more information.

Weekend Food Program

Statistics show that low nutrition prevents students from being able to fully concentrate on subjects being learned. Having the proper nutrition while growing up, learning could be less of a chore. If children could have one of their basic needs taken care of, they will feel healthier and be able to focus on the tasks in front of them enabling them to grow into more productive adults.

Food bags will be provided on Fridays at school. Each bag will consist of two breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. All food is portioned controlled and meets all FDA rules and regulations. Food bags will be available for pick up at the YMCA if your child(ren) are absent from school.

The YMCA has received funding through the United Way to provide a significant amount of food for the school year. We hope that this program will benefit your child(ren). Please look for information at the start of the school year. If you have questions, please contact Deena Smith at (419) 447-8711 or dsmith@tiffinymca.org.
