The Y is committed to making a difference in the lives of children and their families in our community. With your donation to the Strong Kids Campaign, you make it possible for children and teens to take part in programs that teach them positive behaviors, allow them to explore their talents and help them grow and realize their potential.
With Strong Kids funds, the Y is able to provide scholarships for childcare and afterschool programs, summer camps, youth sports programs and membership. On behalf of the children, our volunteers and staff, thank you for your generosity!
Making an Impact
The following are examples of how your Strong Kids donations are used:
- Your gift of $100 builds self-confidence by providing swim lessons and safety programs for three kids in our community.
- Your gift of $250 makes it possible for one child to attend summer camp, with life-enriching activities such as archery, canoeing, songs, and friendships.
- Your gift of $500 gives working parents peace of mind, knowing that their preschooler is enjoying a nurturing, caring and safe environment in our Child Care program.
- Your gift of $1,000 enables one child to attend YMCA resident camp for two weeks, provide a needy family with a full YMCA membership, or give a kid a full summer of day camp, providing a safe, healthy, fun place to grow.
