We as a family have personally benefited from the love, support, and resources of our local Y! As a foster family with NO family in the same state finding help, resources, date nights and even fun things to do as a family was challenging but then we found our Y friends! Our girls love the childcare, boys play basketball, climb the climbing wall, my husband and I enjoy the journey to health and fitness all over the place! They gift us with parents night out allowing my husband and I the chance to reconnect and have fun. Our foster children receive swim lessons and other sports! One of the most amazing things about this membership is that it follows the foster child as they either reconnect with their birth family or to another home. This allows them a little piece of stability and fun to come with them. Love that! We are given opportunities to help our community by making and delivering daily meals to hungry kiddos and families in our own backyard. The boys and I are signed up for Winter Break. They provide scholarships to those who can't afford it and bring lifeguard teams into "at risk" apartment communities and offer swim safety to those who have a pool. I can't say enough about who these people are and what they do for this community but I'm a big fan and I want to be apart of helping them continue the good work... want to join?
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.
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.
