In 2021 Our Community Needs the Y & Our Community Needs you

Michele Hirosumi
The global pandemic posed one of the greatest challenges to our YMCA in our 151 year history. Our mission to strengthen spirit, mind and body for all while supporting the health and well-being of our community was tested to the limit. Faced with shutdowns, record unemployment, closed schools, loss and rising inequites, we quickly pivoted to providing necessities at a time when we ourselves were forced to close our doors. Many of our Y members stayed with us, and donors and community partners supported us generously, as we eagerly stepped up to do more. Together we distributed more than 100,000 free meals to ensure no child would go hungry and neither would our Kupuna. We stepped in with childcare to ensure Essential Workers could work and their Keiki could continue to thrive and learn. Recognizing the sadness and loneliness of isolation, we held virtual classes to bring our community together for better health and well-being, and online activities for families struggling with finding ways to keep their children active and entertained. As more became homeless, the Y repurposed Camp Erdman to transitional housing for 40 houseless individuals and families while they worked towards permanent housing. While the past year has shown us the resilience of our community, there is still much more to be done.

Please JOIN us, join ME, by giving generously to our 2021 Annual Campaign so that we may continue to fill the gaps and address social inequities in the meaningful ways you have challenged us to do so all these years. Help us so that the YMCA of Honolulu can continue to be Here for Good...
