COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

As you know, the Y is a non-profit that operates branches, childcare sites, camp sites, and community centers. Having to temporarily close our physical sites has put us in a challenging position and we are concerned about our ability, as a Y, to continue to serve and come out on the other side of this in a position to help the communities we cherish.  It’s unavoidable that we will have to make some tough decisions that will impact our team in order to preserve the Y for future generations, however every single commitment of support from you will help. We know you are dealing with all the same things we are and we are thankful to have you with us, even if just in spirit. What we know for sure is when this pandemic finally starts to slow, the services we provide at the Y will be needed like never before.

Give Today

  • help provide emergency childcare for “life-sustaining” personnel.
  • help us reach out and support our seniors through Operation R.E.A.C.H. to help ease the challenges of isolation.
  • help provide hunger relief for children through “grab & go” meal service in partnership with local schools.
We will work with state and local officials to guide how we can best be of service to the community and will update this page to keep you informed.

We’re still here for those who need us the most. Thanks for your support, we can’t do this alone.
