BOARD ANNUAL CAMPAIGN 2021
The 2021 Annual Campaign is an opportunity to provide financial assistance to those who need the Y the most. No matter what you choose to give, every dollar counts, whether for seniors, parents, children, college students or anyone in between, YOU can make a difference for our Y.
Together, we can make a better us.
$475 provides one low income child with a fun filled week at YMCA Camp Wakonda. At YMCA Camp Wakonda, kids unplug from screens and connect with each other and to nature. They swim, hike, climb and play outdoors - together. They return home healthier and motivated to continue active lifestyles outdoors.
$700 supports the Y's water safety programs for ten children. With drowning being one of the leading causes of accidental death among children, the Y is addressing this issue. Alongside our swim lessons, the Y's "Safety Around Water" initiative makes underserved children safer in our pools, lakes and rivers.
$1,500 provides a single parent with one year of after school care, allowing them to work to support their family. Out of School time is a risky time for kids as they are most vulnerable to negative influences. The Y makes safe, fun and enriching activities available for our children during times it is most needed.
