YOUR SUPPORT, OUR MISSIONWith schools back in session, we are so proud of the 350 students who participated in our Y’s Summer Literacy programs which helped to narrow this gap for students entering grades 1-4, with 74% of those students coming from low-income households. They are back in the classroom and feeling confident in the skills they honed over the summer! This investment in kids in our community would not be possible without the generous support of donors like you – Thank you! #StrongYStrongCommunity

The summer we have all been waiting for is here!

This has been an amazing summer! Our camps are full of happy campers exploring new things like adventure courses, STEAM programs, paddleboarding, sailing, kayaking and more.  Being outside, having fun and reengaging with friends was just what they needed.  

Our pools are filled with smiling swimmers learning the life skill of water safety and our wellness centers continue to be the essential places where members can safely stay active, healthy and connected.

We have met so many new families through our community outreach over the past year while we provided remote learning opportunities, emergency childcare, and other crucial  resources during the pandemic. We have been able to engage more individuals, children, and families and welcome them into our Y community.  

More than ever before, we are clearly seen as more than our fitness centers, pools and programs. We are recognized as a critical resource for all in good times and in bad.  Your local Y is here to strengthen the community and meet vital needs.

We will never forget what it took to reopen responsibly so rest assured our staff is committed to your safety. We are vigilant in our efforts to keep our facilities clean and safe and dedicated to making your Y experience the best it can be.  We are truly all in this together.

Thank you for supporting our Y and for being part of our Y family.

President and CEO
