FOR A BETTER US™
Today more than ever we need the YMCA to strengthen our health and our hearts, through the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Each day at the YMCA, we see hundreds of individuals and families come through our doors. These individuals come from different backgrounds, age groups, incomes and genders. However, they come to our Y for a common purpose – to improve their health. They come to relieve stress, for emotional support and encouragement, to learn a new skill, to fight social isolation. From a new refugee learning to swim to a senior soothing the pain of arthritis, our participants need the YMCA.
By impacting the lives of those we serve, our reach spreads. Like a stone being thrown into a pond, the ripple effect of taking care of oneself extends beyond just the individual. By taking care of ourselves, we are able to take care of others. At the Y, we serve doctors, nurses, parents, teachers, firefighters, grandparents – all who serve others, every day. If they are not healthy, the community is not healthy.
In order to continue offering services, we need your help. Like that stone, your donation causes a ripple effect – reaching far into our community. The need is greater than you might think. Our YMCA has awarded over $200,000 in scholarships so far this year. We have also supported many local organizations through partnerships and program support.
Your gift to the YMCA is added to our own resources, multiplying the impact. Individuals become healthier, families get stronger and children are safer. Please consider giving to our YMCA to help your community become stronger today.
