Strong Kids Campaign 2014

Support the Y

Strengthen your Community

We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in kids, our health and our neighbors. 

Donors enable the Y, a charitable, non-profit 501(c)3 organization to offer a financial assistance program for those individuals and families that qualify as well as providing program subsidy for much needed community programs.

In 2013 over $200,000 was allocated to 245 children and families for programs and memberships including:  Camp, Childcare, Swim Team, Aquatics, Youth and Teens.  And the Youth, Teens and Sports departments received over $35,000 in program subsidy. 

To become a part of something great or to make a gift, call the Y @ 815.223.7904
