2018 Annual Campaign
GETTING BETTER EVERY DAY At the Y, we believe we have something special—a sense of community—and that everyone should have access to it, along with the programs and services that help us learn, grow and thrive. With the help of our donors, we were proud to share our Y with 712 children, seniors and families last year who otherwise might not have become part of our Y family. -For Danny and his 11 year old daughter Mary, the Y is a place to belong. After overcoming some personal challenges, the Y’s scholarship program allowed Danny to give his 11 year old daughter Mary the opportunity to thrive in mind, body and spirit by re-joining the Titans swim team. In her father Danny’s words, “being able to see her succeed in something she loves and focus on something positive with her friends is an incredible feeling.” -Lisa lost power for several days during a severe winter storm. As a community gathering place, the Y enabled her and over 70 other individuals to stay warm, connected, and utilize shower facilities. At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away. As a result, we provided over $194,000 in financial assistance through our scholarship program. When you donate to the Sanford-Springvale YMCA, you make our communities better through programs focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. GIVE TODAY Every dollar donated to the Y has a lasting impact on the people of Sanford and surrounding communities. Give today for a better us. How you can make a difference: $1600 Enables a child to learn new skills and develop friendships at Camp Marland for the entire 10-week program. $750 Provides a family with a YMCA membership for a full year and access to family friendly programs. $350 Helps a young adult experience a sense of belonging as a member of the YMCA for a year. $80 Provides a safe place for a youth before and after school. $30 Allows a child to build self-confidence and overcome fears by learning to swim at the Y.
