Your Support Helps the Y Deliver on Our Commitment
To nurture the potential of youth through building confidence at camp, academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs, or foundational skills and values in our child care programs
To improve the nation’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change
To give back and support our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community, such as with job training, housing, newcomer services and opportunities to advocate for social change
To offer programs and services to children, adults and families who need financial assistance.
Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.
Every day, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do helps empower communities and the “us” who live in them to thrive.
We can’t do it alone.
That’s why we hope you’ll donate to the Y.
Your generosity will be a wonderful gift to Shelby and the surrounding areas…a real opportunity to help the Y strengthen your community. No other organization and no other donation will have a more a positive impact on “us”.
DONATE FOR A BETTER US.
