Funds raised directly support the Y's cause of strengthening communities by nurturing the potential of every youth and teens, improving the nation's health and well being and providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
Providing financial support is critical to the Y's goal of ensuring that everyone has access to programs and services that support their individual health and well-being.
"At the YMCA of Clay County, we count on the generosity of our donors and volunteers to make a meaningful impact on our community," YMCA of Clay County CEO Deborah Plummer said. "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. All monies raised in Clay County will benefit Clay County families."
Gifts to the Y make a direct impact to the community. Last year, financial support made it possible for 60 children to have a safe place to learn a build confidence after school; 68 children stay active through youth sports; 39 children to learn and develop in Summer Day Camp; and for 112 families to reconnect and grow together at the Y.
The Y is one of the nation's leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Across the United States, 2,687 Y's engage 21 million men, women and children -- regardless of age, income or background -- to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation's health and well-being and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
