BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater Cincinnati
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2013
The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is committed to supporting each child on their path from cradle to college and career. Each year we provide quality afterschool programs and summer day camps rich with literacy, skill development and supervised fun for over 4,000 children. Many of the children we serve need financial assistance for scholarships so they can be safe, learning, and building the confidence and skills required to be successful in school and in life.
I have had the chance to get to know many of these children personally. They hold such amazing potential and merely need the support and positive environment to thrive. I have a goal of raising $5,000 from friends through this new on-line giving site so that when new families need our support to enroll their child in the Y, we will not have to turn anyone away. If together we raise $5,000, we could support 5 elementary age children participating in daily quality afterschool programs throughout the school year OR 7 kids could be part of our full-day Y summer camp preventing the summer learning loss that sets kids back when they return to school in the fall.
I appreciate our friendship and your consideration to join me in this effort. I’ll keep you posted on our progress. Our overall Y goal is to raise $1 million by May 1st. It would be great have you help us ensure All the Kids get the As they Deserve – Adults who care, Advocates, Access and, Activities that build good healthy and resiliency!
Thanks - Sandy
