Hello Family & Friends!
Anyone that really knows me is extremely aware of what’s important to me and that is my family, friends and helping someone in need.
I can truly say working at the Y, I see first hand how all funds raised is completely applied towards scholarships to inspire and improve the quality of someone’s life. Today, 1 in 4 children, teens, and families needs financial assistance to be a part of the Y.
At The South DeKalb Family Y, no child, family, adult, or senior is turned away because of the inability to pay. Through the generosity of donors, we are able to provide a financial assistance for membership, or give a child the opportunity to experience our programs. So I am asking my friends and family to help me ensure access and help change the outcome of a child that mom who might not be able to afford the experience of summer camp, or a safe environment for her child to go afterschool, or the opportunity to be encouraged and gain confidence through youth sports and even learn how to swim.
Together we can create a few first:
• The first step to a healthier lifestyle.
• The first time jumping into a pool without a lifejacket.
• The first chance to be a part of a team.
The first time to have enough confidence to read out loud. Your gift at any level will help ensure many FIRST. Together we can change lives. Thank you!
