Cross Island Y's100 Member Challenge

THE STORY:

We hope to encourage new and existing members of the Cross Island YMCA to donate $1, $5, or $10.

People don’t realize that the Y is more than a swim and gym. In fact, the Y is a cause that provides members with a way to connect in a secure environment and help neighbors right in their own communities. And we are happy to report that the connection and caring is stronger than ever.

One way we help those in need in our communities is through our Annual Support Campaign. Our donors pledge their generous gifts to keep our programs running smoothly and support members who are in need or are facing temporary hardship due to the changing economy.

Y members receive scholarships to keep kids engaged in after school programs and introduce them to new sports like martial arts, provide adults with tools to adopt a healthy lifestyle, families with events so they can enjoy time together, and other programs designed to address pressing issues in our communities. In 2013, we provided more than $234,000 in scholarships & subsidies to over 12,500 kids, families, adults and seniors.

Because of people like you, we can save a kid’s life by teaching them to swim. We can build confidence in kids while they learn. We can prevent disease like obesity and diabetes from spreading throughout New York. We can provide teens with the values they need to become a role model for someone else. We can keep our Seniors connected and with the spirit of independence they once valued.
