I first started working at the Parkway YMCA as my first job at 15. In the six years since then, I have had the opportunity to work in several different positions before becoming a site director after graduating this fall. While working at the Y, I've seen how important donations are in making our programs accessible to all children and families.
Why should I donate to the Spring Campaign?
Your donation will continue to help the YMCA to provide amazing programs and opportunities for youth, teens, and adults throughout the Greater Boston Area. To put into perspective what your donation can help do, in 2018 the YMCA:
~Gave financial assistance to over 1,600 youth, totaling over $3.1M
~761 teens spent their summer working at the Y, for 85% this was their first job.
~785,145 Meals were provided to youth during our year round food program.
~8,304 members received financial aid, totaling over $4.3M

THERE’S NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO BUILD A BETTER US
Building a stronger community and a better us is a cause that is important to me. That’s why I am proud to volunteer and fundraise for the YMCA.
You know the challenges that we face in our community. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. Playing outside has become a rarity. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But where society falls short, the Y – and you and I can step in. Together we can make a difference in the lives of thousands of young people throughout Greater Boston 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.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Y today in support of my efforts to strengthen community.
100% of every dollar donated to the YMCA’s annual campaign stays local. Your kind gift will build a better us by ensuring that the Y’s doors are open to all.
Together we can achieve so much more. Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Please join me and give today.
The Y. For a better you. For a better community. For a better us.™
