Thank you for visiting my site and considering a donation. Your contribution will go 100% towards scholarship to send low income children to a week of safe, nature filled summer camp. That's a huge deal for a kid who might otherwise "camp out" watching TV in a run down apartment complex while their parents worry about their safety.
While at camp, they will be taught to swim if they don't know how (4 children have drowned in Houston the last 2 weeks), engage in a STEM program daily, eat healthy food and best of all make new friends and connect to strong role models.
At the Y, we impact thousands of lives every year through the programs we offer in the areas of eliminating drowning, improving academic performance, eliminating chronic disease and childhood obesity and creating opportunities for social equity. 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.
