A Message From YMCA of Greater Birmingham President and CEO, Dan Pile

a message from ymca of greater birmingham president and ceo, dan pile

Dear YMCA members and supporters,

During this critical time, the Y is responding to an urgent community need to support workers on the front lines of the virus. We are working to temporarily convert our facilities to provide emergency childcare to first responders and healthcare workers at four local hospitals.

These professionals are treating and caring for family members, relatives, and neighbors, including those who are elderly and sick. Without childcare, these vital healthcare providers will not be able to provide the care patients need in this critical time.

I believe we are all in this together, and together we can make a difference. I want to encourage you to maintain your YMCA membership. Closure for any length of time represents a significant threat to meet these emergency services.  Your membership with the YMCA will go a long way to fund our efforts to serve our healthcare workers during this crisis.

The Y continues to be actively involved in our community, and your financial support is essential. The impact of withholding philanthropic support could be potentially devastating to the Y’s ability to serve the community at a time of overwhelming circumstances. 

The Y is uniquely positioned to help. Over 180 YMCA childcare workers have signed on to help care for children of our healthcare communities. Please consider doing your part as well.

Thank you for being a loyal member and for supporting our cause with your tax-deductible support.

Dan Pile - President & CEO, YMCA of Birmingham
