Kids Need Heroes
These are challenging times for kids and families. Today more than ever, families need help to ensure their children receive enough of the attention they need to thrive. In Corry, Spartansburg, Clymer, and Union City, families depend on the YMCA. Each year the number of kids and families who need YMCA financial assistance increases.
Last year the YMCA awarded over $90,000 in financial assistance to deserving kids and families. In order to meet the growing need our goal is to raise $45,000 in this year's campaign.
As a charitable organization, a significant part of our budget is dependent upon gifts from our members and friends. These gifts allow us to fund many programs, which we could not otherwise offer. Some of the programs, which these gifts fund, are as follows:
- A youth activity class can be funded with a $25 donation
- A week in the after school program an be funded with a $50 donation
- A week of day care can be funded with a $140 donation
The generosity of our members and friends has allowed us to positively impact the lives of many in our community over the last 111 years. Please help us keep this work going through a donation to our 2016 Kids Need Heroes Campaign.
If you would like to donate or volunteer to be a part of our fundraising team please contact YMCA Operations Director Lisa Laspada at 814-664-7757 or firstname.lastname@example.org
