YMCA Strong Kids Campaign
As a charity, the Family Y provides valuable financial assistance through its membership assistance program, child care and day camp subsidies and by providing emergency food, clothing and housing support.
The YMCA Strong Kids Campaign raises funds to help ensure that people of all ages in our community have the opportunity to participate and excel at our YMCA programs and services. Programs and services positively impact the lives of all people. They are about more than physical activity, child care or community programs; they are about developing friendships, building self-esteem and having access to a safe, nurturing environment that empowers everyone to be their best!
Currently, 13% or 1 in 7 of our members are subsidized, and requests for support are continuous.Our goal is to raise $75,000 to ensure we remain accessible to all.
These stories from volunteers and staff share inspiring reasons why your gift is so important to bettering the life of another.
