Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
Over the last year and a half, I've been fortunate to get a personal look into the amazing work that the YMCA of Metro Atlanta does in our communities. Their focus on creating meaningful change through on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility definitely resonates with mine values and I'd imagine yours as well.
Atlanta and the surrounding areas, like communities around the world, are 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 joining with the YMCA Ambassadors Board, a group of young professions in the area, to raise $15,000 to support the YMCA in its response to COVID-19. During this time of crisis, the YMCA is stepping up to fill vital needs in our community. Mobilizing staff, facilities, and partners, the YMCA has delivered on two core initiatives:
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.
