When you donate to the FARMINGTON FAMILY YMCA, you make the FARMINGTON COMMUNITY better through programs focused on:
Summer Day Camp: $85 provides 1 week of day camp Day camp at the Y helps kids form new friendships, strengthen confidence and sharpen character. The Y is also working to close the achievement gap and reverse the trend of summer learning loss throughout Metro Detroit by including educational programs into all of our summer day camps. However, not all children have access to enriching summer experiences. The Y raises funds so everyone, regardless of income or background, has the ability to learn, grow and thrive at camp.
Afterschool Care: $150 provides 1 month of Afterschool care According to the office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, children are more likely to engage in drug use, sexual activity and crime from 3 to 7 pm, in those precious hours after school. The Y provides kids with safe, constructive learning environments through its before and after school programs. By engaging youth in exercise activities like soccer, basketball and baseball, as well as providing nutritious food and learning opportunities, parents can go to work and school with a peace of mind, knowing their children are safe, healthy and happy.
Preschool: $315 provides 1 month of preschool The Y recognizes that play stimulates learning for young children, providing a rich environment that promotes cognitive, emotional, physical and social development that is critical to a child’s health. Our preschool program is language rich, with an emphasis on offering the children prereading and prewriting experiences that will spark a lifelong love of language. Character activities that reflect the YMCA’s emphasis on honesty, caring, responsibility and respect are also a primary part of this program.
Every dollar donated to the FARMINGTON FAMILY YMCA has a lasting impact on the people of the FARMINGTON COMMUNITY. Give today for a better us.
