Your Gift Means MORE
There’s no place quite like the Y. We’re a vital part of our community, a welcoming place to learn new skills, connect with others, and access support in times of need. Our unique combination of services enriches the well-being of people of all ages and walks of life. As a nonprofit organization, we never turn away anyone who needs us. We need your financial support to continue to keep that promise.
Behind every gift there is a story to be told, a story of someone whose life was enriched by the Y because someone else believed in our mission enough to contribute to the Annual Support Campaign. Please take a moment to read their stories and learn how your gift does MORE, every day.
“I was struggling just to get by after being unemployed for two and half months. At any point, with my inability to keep up with payments, the Y could have ended enrollment for my two sons, but didn’t. The financial aid program showed compassion for my situation, and I am lucky and thankful to still be employed. I now have high hopes for the life of my family, and things can only improve from this point forward.” -Melissa B
“We had a couple of guest speakers come in (to the Man Up program at the Camp Curtin Y) that had already been there and done that. Just seeing what they did and how they’re living now and their feedback to me really helped out a lot. There’s other things that you can do besides being out on the streets and getting into nonsense out there. I would have to say the Y has helped my future a lot. There is always something positive to do there, and that’s the biggest thing it’s given me.” -Roy P, age 18
