Friends and Family:
Before you stop reading...learn something about the good work of the Y.....I DARE YOU.....
Did you know that:
- One of four members of the Y are "on scholarship"...meaning that they don't pay membership fees, at least not in full?
- The Cowart Family Ashford Dunwoody YMCA each month feeds over 120 families through a grant from the North Atlanta Rotary Club. We distribute eggs, milk, and healthy proteins to families and children that need help. Our goal in 2019 is to also provide 950 meals to children in need while school is out during the summer and winter breaks.
- The Y summer camp programs serve over 450 kids each year and provide a safe environment that keep many off the streets.
The YMCA of Metro Atlanta makes a huge impact in our local community -- every day. I have been a member of the Cowart Family Ashford Dunwoody YMCA for 10 years, joined the Board two years ago, and am honored to be leading the "Y It Matters" fundraising campaign for 2019. Our efforts will ensure more local kids, teens, and families have access and opportunity to be a part of the Y. I am asking you to support me in my efforts to help give ALL people the opportunity to reach their full potential through Y programs.
After 158 years of serving metro Atlanta, the Y understands what our community needs to be its best. As a charitable nonprofit, the Y relies on donors and volunteers to ensure thousands of local kids and teens have the support they need to stay on-track in school, grow as leaders, and learn how to contribute to a better community.
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.
