Help support Waterford Area Youth
Join us for an exciting evening of mystery while supporting local youth.  

We regret to inform you that we will be postponing our Night of Mystery Fundraiser due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We know everyone was excited to attend our first Fundraiser, and we want you know that we will reschedule a new event date as soon as we get notification that we can resume normal activities.

We thank you for your support of Waterford Youth Assistance which purpose is to strengthen youth and families and to reduce the incidence of delinquency, abuse, and neglect through community involvement.

We thank our board of directors and volunteers for what was to be a great event and we look forward to a rescheduled event in the future.

We thank you for your understanding and hope that everyone in our community remains healthy during this difficult time.

Awards were given in categories 6 & younger, ages 7-12 and the teens. Winners are…

We're excited about our latest fundraiser because you don't have to buy ANYTHING! We're collecting gently worn, used and new shoes! Fundraiser starts Sept 10th but start cleaning out your closets now.

WYA will earn funds based on the total weight of the shoes collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated footwear. Dollars earned will help support family education programs, mentoring programs, youth scholarship and recognition programs, low income families with financial needs, and continue youth casework services. Anyone can help by donating gently worn used, or new shoes to any of the following locations:

  • Recovered Chiropractic: 5140 Highland Road, Waterford.
  • Waterford Township Town Hall: 5200 Civic Center Drive
  • Crave Nutrition: 2891 Pontiac Lake Road, Waterford.
  • Imperial Auto Wash: 521 Elizabeth Lake Road, Waterford.

Not only do you help us, but the shoes also get a second life with those in need. It's a double donation!
