The ymca of greater brandywine annual campaign
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. Summer at the Y has a life-changing impact on children and families by offering a safe haven where children can discover the wonder of nature, develop lifesaving water safety skills, boost literacy skills and participate in activities that build self-confidence, character and healthy habits.
wHAT IF WE COULD GIVE EVERY KID IN OUR COMMUNITY
A SUMMER AT THE y?
When you donate to the Y, you help give a child the summer they deserve. Thousands of kids are home alone during the summer, without opportunities to be safe, explore, create, make friends and have fun. Without your support, many kids will be left vulnerable to dangerous and risky behavior. Imagine the possibilities when you give a child a safe haven to learn, grow and thrive this summer.
YOU CAN GIVE A CHILD A SUMMER OF POSSIBILITIES.
Our Y has been creating possibilities through summer camp for more than 100 years. Today, more than 4,000 kids come to our Y’s each week and we are committed to seeing that number grow, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. When you give to your local branch of the YMCA of Greater Brandywine, you help protect kids when they are out of school, give them the skills to stay safe in the water and help them become healthier and more active.
Your support of the Y provides kids with a nurturing environment that will help them develop the positive values, behaviors and skills they need to become confident, healthy and caring adults. You create a better future for everyone. No other organization can impact as many children and families as the Y – after school, at summer camp, on the sports fields and at home. We need your support to make it happen.
Together we can do so much more.
