The YMCA has become a second home to me over the past almost decade that I've been living here in the Boston area. The YMCA has not only helped me grow into a more confident woman and teacher but has provided an amazing community for my daughters who absolutely love coming to the Y. Thanks to her amazing teachers my daughter EmmaGayle enjoys coming to Preschool and learning with her friends. My younger daughter Elexis loves coming to her "Daddy and Me" swim class with my husband. For us the YMCA is family. We've made lifelong friends that mean the world to us. This organization has provided opportunities for countless families I have had the honor of getting to know and love. If you're able to make a donation of any size, large or small, I know that it will make a difference in the life of a deserving individual.
