The Y uses your Annual Support Campaign gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood. We welcome amounts at any level, whatever you are capable of doing. For example, $5,000 ensures unlimited possibilities for the mental and physical well being of the Meadowlands area’s youth. $2,500 provides two children with a summer of camp to create wonderful childhood memories. $1,000 provides 2 teens the opportunity to participate on swim team and learn to work together as a team. $500 provides a child two months in our learning center. $150 allows a child to learn to swim and promote water safety.
At the Meadowlands Area YMCA, we believe in empowering Children to Reach Their Full Potential, Encouraging and Supporting Balanced Lifestyles, Connecting People to Meet Community Needs. In 2014, the Y provided over $200,000 in financial assistance and program subsides to over 1,000 local youth and families.
