Dear Family and Friends,
Growing up I have experienced many of the great things that the YMCA has to offer; swimming, soccer, day camp, gymnastics and many other fun things. Two years ago I had the pleasure of being apart of the Camp High Harbour experience, it was easily the most life-changing week of my life. If I had a minute of your time to tell you about my journey's at this camp, it would not be a minute wasted! Last summer, I was accepted to be an ALC (advanced leadership camper) and that was the year I decided I'm in it all the way with this amazing place! Due to COVID-19, none of know what this summer holds for us regarding camp, but in hopes of it still being in session, please take a moment to read over my Y-Champions page, and consider your donation.
I am excited to announce that this year I have been chosen, again, to be a part of the Advanced Leadership Academy, to be an LIT (leader in training). One of my goals this summer is to make the same positive impact on kids that my counselors made on me in past years. Many kids my age are not as fortunate to have the same camp experience that I had, that’s what Y-Champions is all about. No donation is too small. Your contribution will make a difference, and it is tax deductible.
Each day, the Y works to ensure our community has the support it needs to be its best. I’m proud to be a Y Champion to help give all kids, teens, and families access and opportunity to be a part of the Y – regardless of ability to pay. I am asking you to join me in my efforts to give all people in our community a chance to reach their full potential at the Y.
For more than 160 years, the Y has worked to ensure local kids and teens have the help they need to prepare for kindergarten, stay on-track in school, grow as leaders, and learn how to contribute to a stronger community. Through wellness and hunger relief programs, the Y helps people of all ages stay active and healthy. But, the Y needs your support of the WHY IT MATTERS Annual Giving Campaign to make this possible.
100% of every dollar donated has a lasting impact on the people of metro Atlanta by ensuring the Y’s doors are open to all – regardless of financial ability.
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.
