Four years ago I accepted a position as a Board Member for the Foster Family YMCA. In this role, I have seen first hand how the organization is making a difference in the lives of youth and families in our community. I have been able to grill hot dogs and burgers for all of the kids in the summer program and helped hand out back packs to the kids so they could start school on the right foot. Seeing the kids we help really drives home how important the Y is to our community.
At the Y, we impact thousands of lives every year through the programs we offer in the areas of academic achievement, swim safety, chronic disease prevention, outreach and family relationships. We strive to offer to members of our community an environment that fosters personal growth, leadership skills and healthy relationships.
Your support to our cause makes a true impact, allowing us to help those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to participate in Y programs. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and neighbors.
Please consider making a gift today and support our efforts to strengthen our community through the YMCA.
