Through fundraising and community collaborations, the Merrimack Valley YMCA will deliver more than $3 million in subsidized services to needy and deserving children, adults and families. As a part of the Merrimack Valley YMCA, the Andover/N. Andover Branch provides financial assistance to its community members as well. And believe it or not, the NEED exists right here in our back yard. For example,
890 individuals received financial assistance to participate in programming at the Andover/N. Andover YMCA in 2013.
$67,723 in financial assistance was awarded in 2013, making programs at the Andover/N.Andover YMCA accessible to those in need.
We ask staff, volunteers and members to consider a tax deductible gift to the YMCA and remind them that 100% of the money donated goes directly to those who need it. Whether it is afterschool care for a working family or teaching children to be safe around the water, every year the impact is felt in our community.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of those around you.
