The Harrison Family YMCA staff leadership, Board of Directors and campaign volunteer storytellers recently kicked off the community phase of the Y’s 2018 annual support campaign to ensure that  everyone in the area has access to vital community programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Annual campaign donors make it possible for families and adults to have access to YMCA programs that improve their lives. All of the funds raised are used to provide financial assistance in the form of full and partial scholarships based on individual need as well as outreach programs, which are then made available to participants at little or no charge.

The YMCA is a positive force in this community. Together, they take on the challenges that shape the community’s future. From tackling the achievement gap to teaching healthy habits for a lifetime or giving people the chance to strengthen the community through volunteering, everything the Y does is in service of building a better “us”. This year, the theme is being a hero for those in the community.

The Harrison Family YMCA hopes to raise $85,000 for the 2018 annual support campaign. So far, it is already at 60 percent. You can donate online at harrisonfamilyy.org or grab a pledge card from the front desk at the YMCA at 1000 Independence Drive.
