YMCA Strong Kids Campaign

As a charity dedicated to building healthy communities, we believe that health is a right, not a privilege which is why we do not turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Our goal is to make health accessible by eliminating financial barriers to our community can be healthier and happier. That is why the YMCA raises funds all year, so we can provide financial assistance to those who need it most. 1 in 5 children requires financial assistance to participate in YMCA Camps and Programs. Our Annual Strong Kids Campaign makes our YMCA accessibility possible. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live healthier, happier lives.

Big or small, every gift helps children, youth, adults, and families in our communities. Last year, through the generosity of donors, YMCA was able to raise $52 000 and provide 242 children with the financial assistance they needed to reach their potential. This year, by August 31st our goal is to raise $50 000 to continue to support our community.
