I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the YMCA. As a member and volunteer, I have seen first-hand how this organization is making a difference in the lives of the children and families in our community.
Each year, programs funded by the YMCA help to improve lives in the Downtown Houston community. These programs have helped to reduce drowning, improve academic performance, prevent chronic disease and childhood obesity, and create opportunities for social equity. One of the stronger Downtown YMCA partnerships is with Gregory Lincoln Education Center where elementary and middle school children have access to programs so they can experience personal growth, develop leadership skills and healthy relationships.
Your support is so important to the Downtown YMCA staff and volunteers as it helps those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to participate in YMCA programs. All support received goes toward supplementing program fees and providing scholarships for those who cannot afford to participate without these financial gifts. 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 tax-deductible donation today to help support efforts to strengthen our community through the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA. Thanks for your continued support of the YMCA!
