For more than 150 years, the YMCA has strengthened communities by connecting people to their potential, purpose and each other.
But 2020 has been a year unlike any other. We’ve experienced isolation. Loss. Shutdowns. Record unemployment. Escalating inequities in shelter, food and well-being. And more.
But as our world and our communities experienced a shutdown, our YMCA charged toward to the front lines.
Together, we fed more than 100,000 meals to keiki in our community who were reliant on school lunches.
Provided care for 1,700+ children so our essential workers could keep serving and parents could get back to work.
Connected teens through virtual enrichment and social programs to keep them thriving. And provided counseling support to at-risk teens to keep them healthy and safe.
We collected more than 100,000 pieces of PPE to be distributed to health care and other essential workers.
We made the Virtual Y a reality allowing our community to stay connected and healthy.
At Camp Erdman we kept 40 houseless individuals and families in safe transitional housing.
This past year has shown us how strong our community is. But there is still much to be done.
The needs in our community will grow in 2021 as we recover from the pandemic. This year, more than ever, we’ll be relying on the generosity of donors to make sure that we continue our 150 + year legacy of serving the most critical needs of our community and are truly able to be “for all.”
We need your support and the support of your family, friends, and co-workers.
Please, make a gift today to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body.
