Why the Y

What you may not know about the YMCA

  • The YMCA is a non-profit. When it comes to our mission, fees from membership aren’t enough by themselves to get the job done.
  • We raise scholarship money through our Annual Campaign to provide financial assistance to those who are unable to join or participate in our programs on their own
  • We are passionate about providing a safe and educational after-school environment for the children of our community.
  • We’re also passionate about helping individuals and families live healthier lifestyles, providing chronic disease programming, swim safety for at risk children and adults and food distribution to address disparities.

When the going got tough…
We stepped up.

To say that 2020 was a challenging year is an understatement. Like everyone else, we were forced to tighten our belts, and, in doing so, we had to furlough many good people. But, through it all, we kept our eyes on our mission. And, while it might have been simpler just to close up shop, we didn’t.  Rather, we looked for opportunities to help our community. Here are a few of the things we’ve been doing that you may not have known about:

  • We provided childcare for frontline medical workers who have spent the past year and more working long, stressful hours and risking their lives to treat those suffering from COVID19.
  • We reached out to local food banks and joined in the effort to hand out food to individuals and families in need.
  • After the recent tornadoes we offered victims a place to shower and to drop off their children while they dealt with the storm damage.

So, as you think about getting back to some sort of normal life, as you think about returning to your workout routine, and taking care of yourself physically, spiritually, and mentally, think about the YMCA. We’ve been around since before the turn of the last century and we’re not going anywhere. Fact is, we’re here for you just as we’re here for people a whole lot less fortunate. And know that, when you join the YMCA, your dues and any donations you make along the way are doing good in this community we all call home.
