Upstate of South Carolina

About Us

YMA CARES has been a part of numerous initiatives in the spirit of charity and community—with the intent to help the community through philanthropy, benevolence, education, training, communicative competencies, and financial and asset comprehension. Some notable steps taken by YMA CARES include:

Annual Christmas Toy Giveaway

While it is important to work through policy and lobbying to bring more opportunities to the people of the community, these moves aren’t necessarily conducive to people’s happiness. Our annual toy giveaway is one example of our intervention in the community to bring joy to the children in the Upstate of South Carolina.

Economic Initiatives In addition to our Annual Christmas Toy Giveaway, we also work throughout the year to uplift the economic conditions of the people in the community. We offer credit and business consultations at no-cost to future entrepreneurs and business owners launching their dreams through the business experts at YMA Financial.

Our team volunteer and teaches entrepreneurship classes at Spartanburg Community College and provide financial and business workshops to the community. We are currently in the process of devising and introducing new initiatives that will help improve the economic standing of the Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg community, using our various subsidiaries and associated organizations as the transmission channels.

A Message From

Joseph & Rebecca Wallace – organizers of this fundraiser

“YMA CARES is excited to announce its 8th Annual Christmas Toy Giveaway.

Our event over the last eight years has attracted a remarkable turnout of hundreds of families from all over the Upstate. Last year, we hit our record high of assisting 3,200 individuals.

We provide children with free toys and giveaways. The event also hosted live performances and provided free food, drinks, and music.

This year, we anticipate the turnout to be even larger, so we are relying on the leaders of our communities to help support this cause of making this joyous holiday a wonderful and humbling time for every child who joins us in Greenville and Spartanburg County.

Parks Insurance in Partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina was our proud Presenting Sponsor of the YMA CARES 8th Annual Christmas Toy Giveaway. They provided families with free on-site resources for Health Insurance, Food Assistance, Utility Bill Payment Assistance, Clothing Assistance and Employment Assistance.”
