I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the YMCA of Greater Houston through my board position with the Weekley Family YMCA. As a volunteer with the Y, I have a first-hand role in shaping how the organization is making a difference in the lives of youth and families in our community.
Did you know your local YMCA impacts thousands of lives every year through providing programs in the areas of improving academic performance through free afterschool tutoring and literacy programs, eliminating drowning, addressing childhood obesity and creating opportunities for social equity???
In fact, the Weekly YMCA partners with Shearn Elementary School (located just south of 610 on Stella Link) to offer support programs for the families who have children in attendance. Your donations will go directly toward supporting scholarship participants from Shearn elementary in the YMCA Summer Sports Camps. You are sponsoring a child who would otherwise be home alone during the summer months.
Please consider making a small (or LARGE!) a monetary donation that will allow the Weekley Y and the YMCA of Greater Houston to continue to make a true impact through helping members of our community who would not otherwise be able to afford to participate in Y programs. The YMCA strives to offer to members of our community an environment that fosters personal growth, leadership skills and healthy living choices - beyond the membership of each individual Y location. 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 our neighbors.
Please consider making a monetary gift today (even just $20) to support efforts to strengthen our community through the YMCA.
