Why the Y?

Organized by: Alex Gerwer

People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. Increasingly children are facing seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families are finding it difficult to spend quality time together. Playing outside has become a rarity. Face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow. But where society falls short, the Y – and donors like you – step in. Together we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve.

After 93 years of serving our community, the Y understands what our community needs to be at its best. Working with generous donors like you, the Y provides everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and to contribute to a better community. Everything that the Y does is in the service of making us – as individuals and a community – better. We face challenges in our communities, but just like the Y, you see the opportunity to make a difference. The Y is our partner, standing with us to strengthen our community. Make a donation today and join me in taking an important step toward making a difference and building a better us.
