a day of giving back that celebrates generosity and kindness
The annual Giving Tuesday online event takes place each year on December 1st.
People of all ages and backgrounds in our local communities 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. Playing outside has become a rarity. Face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But where society falls short, the Y-and individuals like you-step in.
The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA has provided over 62,000 scholarships and invested over $2,000,000 in our communities during 2015, providing financial assistance for individuals and families. Giving them the opportunity to have quality child care, learn to swim, regain strength after an illness and prevent chronic diseases by developing healthy habits.
The YMCA believes the most meaningful gift we can give our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is the commitment to come together and build a better community.
Join us for the fourth annual Giving Tuesday by making a donation to the Y and taking your first step in building a better us. Together, we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve.
