The YMCA of Metro Atlanta makes a huge impact in our local community -- every day. I'm proud to be a Y Champion to 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.
Hi my name is Elissa Lynn and this summer will be my eighth year at camp, i'm so excited to be back at my home away from home. I do not even know where to begin with the imprint camp has left on my heart. While being at camp I have learned so much about God and how he has a plan for every one of us. If I hadn't gone to camp six years ago I don't think I'd be the person I am today because camp has taught me to love everyone and be a leader in and out of camp. I have looked up to the camp staff since my first day at camp even till today, their outgoing personalites and love for camp has inspired me to be apart of the ala program. After looking up to my counselors for all these years at camp it's made me want to do the same thing for a child who wants to learn more about God and become a leader. I have been so blessed that my parents have sent me back to camp each year, but some kids don't have the same oppurtuites as me or other campers. This is why I want you to make a donation, I want kids to be able to come to camp and learn about God, how they can become a servant leader, and just have fun. If camp can change my life I'm sure it can do the same for a child that needs a donation to come here this upcoming summer too.
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.
