STRONG KIDS Annual Campaign

THIS YEAR, WE HELPED MORE KIDS THAN EVER...
THANKS TO DONORS LIKE YOU

In 2016, we were able to give $132, 300 to youth, adults, seniors and families who requested financial assistance for memberships or programs. This was over $30,000 more than last year. This is only possible thanks to the generous donors and volunteers who gave their time and money over the course of the year. Here are two of the ways kids received this help:

In Day Camp, kids stayed physically active with games and outdoor activities, learned about growing gardens and ways to eat fruits and vegetables, and built friendships. For the first time ever, they also received a healthy breakfast and lunch. 50 children received full or partial sponsorships to attend.

The Y gave kids in K-6th grade in Canton and Farmington a safe place to go after school & have a healthy snack. At our new Westview Learning Center, we were able to help 40 children improve at school, providing one-on-one tutoring for homework as well as extra enrichment in math and reading. Across all three school age centers, 76 children were given sponsorships to attend.

These are just two of the YMCA programs that invest in our community’s youth. We want to continue to provide as many youth, families and individuals as possible with the opportunity to learn healthy habits, succeed at school, play sports, and build relationships. With your help,the YMCA will make an even bigger difference in Canton and its surrounding communities this year.

Together, we can build strong kids, strong families, and a strong community.
