The Y makes strengthening our communities our cause. We count on the generosity of our donors to help us nurture life lessons in kids, foster health and well-being among people of any age, bring people together to pursue passions old and new and provide mutual support for everyone in our neighborhoods.
Why I'm campaigning
I love my job and I love the families and children I get to work with everyday! It is such a gift to come to work and share laughter and learning opportunities with the kids in our centers and develop relationships with their parents. I love being a part of the Y, and making it available to everyone. I'm campaigning to raise money for the YMCA this year so more children and families have the opportunity to participate in the life-developing programs that the YMCA offers.
My Y Story
I'm the Coordinator for Child Watch, the Infant Center and our new Kids Club at Magdalena Ecke YMCA, and have been working at the YMCA for close to 6 years. I am fortunate enough to interact with hundreds of kids every week, see them grow up, and watch them develop their own passions and interests. Without the programs and assistance opportunities the YMCA offers so many families in the local communities, many of these children wouldn't be able to participate in our program, go to camp, take dance classes, be in a ballet recital, learn to play guitar, go to Wizard Camp, or learn how to swim! The Annual Campaign not only makes these programs possible, but it benefits every member that comes to the YMCA, as every dollar raised goes directly back into the programs here at the Y by helping with scholarships and program subsidies. My goal is $500 this year, I made it last year -- please help me make it again and we can share our love for the Y and all it offers us with our communities.
