Everyone has heard of the YMCA but few know how much we do. We do more than strengthen bodies – we strengthen communities. We’re a cause dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs and services built on the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring, no organization impacts our society as much as the Y. Together with supporters like you, we provide “scholarships” of nearly $300,000 each year to underserved members of our community. We take pride in the fact we don’t turn people away because of inability to pay.
Our annual campaign raises money to benefit children and families in our community. Where society falls short, the Y steps in. And you can help as an ambassador, fundraiser, donor and volunteer.
Our fundraising priorities include:
1. Swimming programs to make all kids safe in the water
2. Playground construction to create a fun and safe space for kids’ play
3. Youth in Government, to help our teens grow into community leaders
4. Reading & education programs, to create successful students of all ages
