FRIEND OF YOUTH ANNUAL CAMPAIGN
2020 was certainly a year to forget. But we need to make sure that we don’t forget the good that came out of 2020 and the pandemic.
The Y had to pivot from our normal day to day operations when we closed from March 20-May 18. We developed a new normal as we remained dedicated to our members and local families by providing childcare for essential families and on-demand fitness classes to the community via Facebook Live. We had to operate with less staff but still maintain a high level of service.
We are excited to see things slowly returning to normal but the Y needs your support now more than ever. Help us continue to provide the much-needed programs for our neighbors. We cannot do it without you.
- The Y is Accessible to All – Contributions received from the Friend of Youth Annual Campaign fund the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services. Each year, we count on your generosity to enable us to give back and support neighbors right in our communities.
- The Y is Continually Serving Our Community – In 2020, we gave $266,371 in scholarships. Your generous donations provided programs that promote healthy spirit, mind and body to 13,852 families, adults, kids and seniors experiencing financial hardship.
- Our Commitment – No one is turned away for inability to pay. That’s why 100% of donation dollars go directly to helping those in need.
The YMCA of the Golden Crescent never stopped supporting our community during the COVID-19 shutdown.
