Thank you all for making it this far and viewing my personal page! Please read on to get a glimpse of how the YMCA has made an impact on my life and how you can make a difference by donating today.
I grew up playing recreational and club soccer at both the Carl E. Sanders YMCA at Buckhead and the Cowart-Ashford Dunwoody YMCA. I was one of the lucky ones and was able to play in various sports leagues throughout my youth. After being a part of the YMCA Staff for several years now, I have been able to reflect on all of the skills and life lessons I have learned through youth/team sports. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same opportunity to play in sports leagues growing up like I did and like many others.
YOU can change this by donating to the Why It Matters Campaign! Each dollar raised goes directly towards provinding finanical assistance for those in need and can help get their kids into YMCA programs including sports leagues. Here are just a few examples of what your donation can do for others:
• $50 – Provide a child with valuable and potentially lifesaving safety skills with a scholarship for swim lessons.
• $100 – Gives a child the chance to build self-confidence and learn how to be a part of a team with a youth sports scholarship.
• $250 - $500 – Provides a scholarship for a child to have a safe, fun, and engaging summer at Day Camp
• $1,000 – Gives a child a safe place to spend out-of-school time in our Y Afterschool Program
Every dollar donated to the WHY IT MATTERS Annual Giving Campaign has a lasting impact on the people of metro Atlanta by ensuring that no one is turned away from the Y -- regardless of ability to pay.
Please join me and support the Y by making a donation today. Your gift will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need the Y most.
