A CHALLENGING TIME FOR OUR YMCA
This is an extremely difficult time for our YMCA. Our financial situation is indeed precarious. We depend almost entirely on revenues from our membership and program fees, with 10-15 percent from charitable gifts. Sadly, with the dramatic loss of revenues, we had no choice but to temporarily lay off 130 part-time and 5 full-time staff members. It was a heartbreaking decision because our staff are the life-blood of our organization, as well as friends and neighbors. We have a very small team remaining who are committed to steering us through this crisis and supporting our most vulnerable children and their families in the meantime.
WILL YOU CONSIDER A DONATION TO SUSTAIN OUR Y?
If you are in a position to help, we would be very grateful if you would consider making a charitable contribution this month or for multiple months to sustain us through this unprecedented time, and help our Y reemerge from this public health crisis. We want to be ready and prepared to respond to you, your family and others who will need the Y in their lives more than ever. We hope you can remain by our side as a member and supporter in that effort. Make a charitable contribution HERE.
