OUR NEXT EVENT
Mission Moment Tours
January 31 - February 4
Join us for our Mission Moment Tours and see your dollars in action!
As YLS members, you know that you don’t pay a membership fee to join. Instead, your contribution goes directly to our United Way's Community Impact Fund, which allows us to fund and lead critical programs throughout El Paso. These programs support children and families in the areas of health, education, and basic needs, meaning your contributions create real change for El Pasoans.
Now, you have the opportunity to see your impact firsthand. Mission Moment Tours will take us behind the scenes of five of our partner agencies, including the Boys & Girls Club of El Paso, the El Paso Center for Children, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank, Opportunity Center for the Homeless, and Creative Kids. Get a peek at the intricacies of running these much-needed programs and the spaces these agencies provide services in.
Feel free to attend one or all based on your schedule.Check out the full schedule below, register, and we'll see you during the tours! COVID safety protocols, including masks and temperature checks, will be followed during these tours.

Family Fun Registry
In response to COVID-19, YLS and sister donor network, RISE, joined forces to host donation. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, members supported nonprofit emergency shelters by collecting activities and in-home educational supplies to keep the minds of participants sharp. Items included puzzles, books, board games and more.
