BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT DATE: Jul 23, 2016
Dear Friends & Family,
Although many people may not think of it at first, helping families is part of what the Y does every day. When children have a safe and productive place to spend after-school time, parents have the opportunity to work and to pursue their own education.
Households throughout New York City are doing their best to raise good children—an especially difficult challenge when a parent is going to school.
Every day at the Y we hear stories of families, like Khaldia’s, doing their very best to make it in New York City. Finding and keeping a job, keeping children safe and engaged, seeking ways to get ahead—families need support simply to make it from day to day, and that's exactly what the Y provides.
Children and parents in all five boroughs depend on the Y to be there when we are needed most. For 164 years we have been steadfast in helping New York City families face all kinds of challenges. That's why Khaldia made a special point of saying, "The Y made a major positive difference in my life as well as my child's life."
We know you care about the future of New York City. What we will do with your help is so much greater than what we can do without you. When you support the Y, you help us give more children and families education, safety, security and opportunity—the things that will change their lives permanently for the better.
I can say with complete confidence: I have seen with my own eyes how profound a difference we can make together.
Please show us how deeply you care about New York City. I hope to hear from you soon.
