In a time where your community needed a little extra support, you helped the Richmond District YMCA surpass our goal of raising $100,000 to continue offering this support for the individuals and families who rely on us.
You helped provide fitness scholarships, afterschool enrichment, teen wellness, and senior engagement. You helped build strength, create friendships, and promote social values. You did it, and we could not be more proud and grateful for your help.
Here are some examples where your generosity has made a tremendous impact:
• We increased our membership financial assistance by 25% with the WE CARE program to guarantee that families affected by these hard times will keep their membership in order to stay healthy.
• We gave away more than $20,000 in financial aid last year to ensure children in our area would be able to share in our summer camp programs.
• We subsidized our afterschool programs by $125,000 in order to give Richmond District families the opportunity to participate in safe, enriching afterschool programs at no cost.
• Our lines for the food pantry and bread program have increased by 20% over this past year serving more than 450 immigrant and low income families. In times of need, it is essential to maintain programs that provide a variety of healthy food.
