TODAY IS GIVING TUESDAY - WILL YOU HELP?

Today, May 5th is GIVING TUESDAY and we hope that you will continue to support our Y as we support our community! The NYS Alliance of YMCAs will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $2500.  Already we have raised $525 - will you help us do more? 

 

 During the Coronavirus Crisis, we are providing much-needed childcare for our families as well as children of first responders and other medical and essential workers, many of whom do not have the resources for childcare fees.  We have been providing financial assistance for over half our residents who are unable to pay rent (as well as other necessary support for them), reaching out with wellness calls for our seniors and other most needy members and virtual fitness opportunities.  Our members just tried out our first zoom group exercise classes and they were a big success.  Our Dance participants will be zooming today as well; a great way to celebrate the Y and Cinco De Mayo!

Just as we have in past crises like the housing and financial crisis of 2008, where we drastically reduced membership fees of anyone in need, the Y is still here for our community.  The direction of our mission has not changed; we have never turned anyone away based on their ability to pay and during the last two years gave out over $800,000 in aid to the families we serve. In order to be able to reopen and continue our mission when the crisis is over, we are asking for all of our members’ support.
