You know the challenges that we face in Erie. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. People are not connected to their neighbors and face time happens through a phone. And, instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But, when challenges arise, the Y – and donors like you – steps in. Everything the Y does, is in service of making us – as individuals and our community better.
Our Y sits at the forefront of several key issues facing the Erie community including:
- Safe Spaces: Drowning Prevention/Learn to Swim, After School Enrichment, Teen Center
- Health: Wellness for Veterans, Senior Activities Outreach, adult & childhood obesity
- Learning: High school graduation rates, Early Learning Readiness, Teen Center, Literacy
- Meals for Kids: Food + Fun Bus, Healthy Eating Standards, Summer Foods
From Safe Spaces to academic achievement, when you donate to the Y, you’re giving those in need opportunity to thrive.
The YMCA of Greater Erie is a 501 c 3 charity and is one of the largest philanthropic organizations in Erie County dedicated to helping children and families live healthier, more productive lives in spirit, mind and body. More >>
