BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT DATE: Jul 23, 2016
Dear, friends —
Each year, nearly 100,000 young women in New York City come to the Y to learn new skills, make new friends and, quite simply, have the time of their lives. They are thriving in our college readiness and leadership development programs, where the Y provides the support and resources they need to reach their potential — often in the face of adversity. Today, your Y is at the forefront of empowering young women.
Now meet one of these girls, a remarkable young woman named Yara, who was separated from her mother during the throes of the Egyptian Revolution. Click here to see how Yara found the support she needed, as an immigrant to New York City, to begin her new life at the Y.
Because you care, we hope you’ll join us. With your gift, we’ll be able to put more young women, like Yara, on a safe and secure path to adulthood. She is just one of many girls in New York City who stand to benefit from finding a home at the YMCA.
Together we can better young women’s lives by helping them find their voice, develop confidence, become inspired, and adopt a healthy lifestyle — all with the guidance of positive adult role models in a safe environment.
Please make your tax-deductible gift today, and help provide life-changing opportunities to the girls of our city.
I hope to hear from you soon.
