The EMPTY STOCKING FUND has been helping families in need in Cabarrus County & Kannapolis for 87 years! Through donations, we are able to help provide gifts to kids and teens ages sixteen and under in our community.


GIVE: Bring in unwrapped Christmas gifts (for infant to age 16) and place the gift in one of barrels set out in November or take a stocking off one our Christmas trees and shop for an entire family! Drop off locations will be available at all Cabarrus County branches. 

DONATE: If you would like to donate monetarily, please make out a check to the Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA, and we can do the shopping for you! Checks can be sent to Kannapolis YMCA, 101 YMCA Drive Kannapolis, NC 28081. 

You can also make a monetary donation online here.

VOLUNTEER: We can't do this alone! If you would like to volunteer your time to the cause, you can view our volunteer opportunities here.
