Dear Y Family: 

Many charities are looking to their donors to continue to support them today on Giving Tuesday 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. 

For more than 117 years, our community has entrusted the Y to do extraordinary things in uncertain times, and we have always answered that call. We’ve always been more than just a gym and swim - filling gaps and supporting critical needs in ways that no other organization can - but we can’t do it alone. Our Y’s ability to remain a vital thread that holds the fabric of our community together depends on you.  
As our community begins to recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19, our neighbors are counting on us.  If you can give $1, $10, $100 or $1000 or anywhere in between, every dollar makes a difference.  Your contribution ensures 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. Normally, 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 those we serve; something I am extremely proud of!

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DONATE TODAY!
