The Y and the Kilmer community has and continues to mean a lot to myself and my family. My wife also works for the Y and my son is enrolled in daycare at the Y. Helping to raise money so that more and more families can be part of the Y and its mission is extremely important to me and my work. I hope that you can donate whatever amount is in your means.The Y and the Kilmer community has and continues to mean a lot to myself and my family.

My Y Story started almost 19 years ago as I started working the front desk at the Y. Seeing the onsite after school program made me realize how much fun childcare was and I soon started working at the after school at the Kilmer. In 2008 I took over as Director of the program. I have seen many, many children come through the program over the years, some children who are now high school and college graduates and even a few who have come back to work for the YMCA. I also frequently see former participants who have become young adults who recognize me and are even more surprised when I remember their names. I have also worked for a number of Y summer camps over the years, most notably helping to run a Teen Camp for the past 11 years.
Supporting the Parkway Community YMCA
Our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work of the Y. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see the opportunity to make a difference.
Building a stronger community is a cause that is important to this team. That’s why we are proud to come together to volunteer and fundraise for the YMCA.
The YMCA has been helping people throughout the Greater Boston community to learn, grow and thrive for more than 165 years. Whether it’s addressing the academic achievement gap, supporting individuals facing chronic diseases or providing financial assistance so that all people may access our programs and services, the Y is there to meet the challenge. The Y counts on its donors to continue to make this meaningful work possible.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of thousands of young people and families who will turn to the Y for encouragement and support. Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.
Together we can achieve so much more. Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Please support our team by joining us in making a gift today.
