Dear Friends & Family,
I’m raising funds to help keep children safe, engaged and connected to positive role models when school is out!
The Y Afterschool Program provides a safe haven for more than 12,000 children from disadvantaged neighborhoods and, if not for the Y, would be at home alone.
Y Afterschool keeps kids productive in the unsupervised time between the end of the school day and when parents return from work. We know that when children have a safe place to learn and grow among positive adult role models, families enjoy a better quality of life.
Many are able to enjoy that experience thanks to scholarships supported by generous donors.
It would mean the world to me if you would join me in supporting the Y by donating now.
When you give, you help the YMCA provide life-changing opportunities to the children and families of our city.
Margaret (Peggy) A. Vega
P.S. From summer to school year the Y is here to ensure that all New York City Children have the chance to thrive.
