Dear Y Family:

To those of you who recently donated to our first virtual event, A Circle of Caring, we thank you!  If you were not able to participate, you can view on our website under Masquerade Ball.      Many charities are looking to their donors to continue to support them on Giving Tuesday (December 1st) especially this year, of all years, and we are no different.  2020 has been like no other in our recent history and our Y still needs your help.

Whether you can give $1, $10, $100 or $1000 or anywhere in between, every dollar makes a difference.  Your contribution can ensure that a senior citizen has access to our group zoom exercise classes, an essential worker has peace of mind that their child is safe, a Y resident who cannot afford their rent still has a roof over their head, a child can participate in one of our youth programs such as dance, cheer or swim team to stay active during COVID or that an adult member can still stay fit during these unprecedented times.  It’s hard to keep up with all the hardships in our community but we are still here and working to support those in need.  Whether we are making sure that school-age children have a safe and engaging place to learn remotely, securing food for those who need it or checking in on our isolated and needy members, our Y remains vigilant to our mission.   

Many of our Y families and members have been hit harder than others in these unprecedented times and your contribution will impact our ability to provide services. During normal times you might see me, and our CEO, Board members and other staff and volunteers in our lobby talking to members about our Y’s charitable efforts during Y Giving Week. Unfortunately this year, we cannot meet face to face but please know you are part of our Y Family and we are very grateful for your support.  Know too  , that your entire donation will be used to help to help those we serve; something I am extremely proud of!

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.  Please DONATE NOW!
