THE STORY:

 

Jane* had no idea how she would get through the summer as a single parent with 5 children, with only her income to support her family. Her circumstances were well known in the community - her family had lost everything in a fire. There seemed to be no solution.

“Without the support and care of the Carls Family YMCA and the amazing camp counselors, I don't know what I would have done. My children were hesitant to trust others because the fire that burned down our home was intentionally set by a family member” said Jane.

Financial assistance for camp was provided for all of her children through the Carls Family YMCA Annual Campaign.

“My children learned to trust others, and I was given hope. They were transformed through the love and care provided by the counselors.”


The Carls Family YMCA helped Jane and her family through a very difficult time, giving them a safe place to heal and belong. Throughout the Kensington Valley Community, countless people know the YMCA. But there's so much more to the Y than you might think. We're  a cause dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

 

100% of contributions will go directly to initiatives at the Carls YMCA.​

Your contribution will allow the Carls Family YMCA to support the following Y programs:

  • Weeks of Summer Day Camp
  • Girls to participate in Girls on the Run
  • Boys to participate in Stride
  • Teenagers Mentored through Initiatives
  • Kids Learning Life Saving Skills with Swim Lessons
  • Families Welcomed Into the Y
  • Seniors Welcomed Into the Y
  • Participants in the First Responders Wellness Initiative

For a better you. For a better community. For a better country.

The Y. For a better us.
