There's more to the Y than you may think.GIVE ONLINE BUTON

The YMCA needs your help. We're not a gym. We're not a recreation facility. We are a charitable organization. As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of people like you to support our programs and services. Everything the Y does is in service of making us--as individuals and a community--better. Together, we can achieve so much more. 

Please consider making a gift to the Y.

Healthy Kids Day

Healthy Kids Day

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain weight and fall behind in studies. On April 29th, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for updates on Healthy Kids Day 2017!
