Strong Kids Annual Campaign

Campaign Ends Oct. 15, 2019

 Changing a mind can change a life.

One of the things that makes it nearly impossible to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of success is believing in yourself.

Many kids in our community face the same challenge. It may be because they haven’t had opportunities to thrive or because they’ve been taught to believe that they can’t be successful. Sometimes they just don’t feel like anyone cares.

That’s where you and the YMCA come in.

Your support of the Y’s Strong Kids campaign can help change a child’s mind.

It can show a child that there is somewhere they belong.

It can help that child believe in themselves and build their confidence.

It can teach a child to lead.

In the long run, kids can help create strong communities, but only if they have the chance to reach their full potentials.

Your gift will help support proven programs that give kids the opportunities they need to live healthier, happier lives. 

Please give today and help to change a child’s life.

Donate between August 15 and October 15, 2019 and triple your impact!

Every dollar you donate is matched by Homestead Land Holdings Ltd. and The Estate of Larry Gibson.

We believe every child deserves a chance to fulfill their potential and we hope you do too.
