‘Y for All’ launched

The YMCA of Greenwich has launched its annual appeal campaign, called Y for All, and is seeking support for its operations from throughout the community.

For nearly a century, the YMCA of Greenwich has served as a community center in the heart of town. The YMCA strives to strengthen the community by enabling people of all ages and abilities to lead healthier, more active and productive lives.

As a charitable organization, the YMCA relies heavily on philanthropy in order to provide its services. Through generous donations from individuals and organizations, such as The United Way of Greenwich, the YMCA is able to partner with other community organizations like Abilis, Community Centers Inc., Navy Seals Mentoring Program, Pathways and others to provide needed programming and financial aid and scholarships for childcare and members. In 2011, the YMCA provided more than $300,000 in financial assistance, ensuring no child, family or adult was turned away due to an inability to afford fees.

Charlie Leigh, Interim CEO of the YMCA said in a press release “The Y for all campaign is helping us build a stronger community. It will allow us to have the resources needed to ensure anyone who wants to use the YMCA can and to work with other great organizations in town. This is an exciting time at the YMCA and we hope everyone will be a part of it.”

Those interesting in contributing to the Y for All Campaign should call the YMCA at 203-869-1630 or visit its website at Greenwichymca.org.
