The metro Atlanta area, like communities around the world, is facing unprecedented challenges related to COVID-19. The YMCA of Metro Atlanta continues to serve those who need help the most during these difficult times, with essential services that seek to ensure the Metro Atlanta community stays healthy and safe.
I am a member of the YMCA Ambassadors Board, and we are a collection of 15 young professionals who have committed to raising $15,000 to support the YMCA in its response to COVID 19. I became an Ambassador and have chosen to raise money to support the Y's efforts because of the way the Y has supported me since before I could remember. When I was a baby, the Y gifted my parents with a years worth of diapers. I learned to swim and play basketball at the Y, and I've shared moments and learned from icons like legendary poet Maya Angelou as well as Ambassador Andrew and Dr. Walter Young. The Y even gave me my first opportunity to travel abroad to expand my horizons and learn about different cultures, which expelled my fears around being far from home and sparked a newfound passion for travel. The Y has poured so much into me that it's only right that I return the favor- not because I have to, but because I want to. Please join me and support the Y by donating today. No matter the size, your gift will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need the Y most.
The YMCA has launched two core initiatives to fill the vital needs in our community.
Childcare for First Responders: The YMCA is supporting essential hospital staff, first responders, and frontline workers, including law enforcement, firefighters, grocery store workers, etc. by providing affordable childcare from 5:30 AM-8 PM every day. Children 6 weeks-12 years old.
Hunger Relief: In the face of COVID-19 challenges, the YMCA is leveraging its existing programs and partnerships to support 6,000 metro Atlanta families weekly through hunger relief efforts.
