Did you know that 1 in 5 children who come to the Y requires financial assistance in order to join and stay in a program they need?
The Y Strong Kids Campaign raises much needed resources to support Y programs that give kids the opportunities they need to reach their full potential: to live happier, healthier lives today, and grow into productive adults in the future. Hundreds of local kids, teens and families are unable to afford the full cost of participation in a Y program, but they still need safe places, caring and trained volunteers and staff, and programs that teach life skills. The Y's financial assistance programs allow everyone in our community to have access to Y programs and services, regardless of their background or financial situation.
Your generous donation will help the Y ensure people of all ages are healthier and more productive, regardless of their background or financial situation.
Your support allows us to:
- Help a struggling family to enjoy fun filled activity at their local YMCA
- Help a child learn to swim
- Help a teen to learn to lead and feel success
- Enable a child to participate in a recreation or physical activity
- Enable a family to use a trusted, quality child care
