FOR A BETTER TOMORROW
Before Covid-19, some families in Connecticut struggled to afford the cost of living, the cost of child care, and the cost of enrichment opportunities. Since the global pandemic began affecting all of our communities and the youth, adults, and families who live within them, the Southington-Cheshire Community YMCAs met these challenges head-on, and never stopped supporting those we serve.
The Southington-Cheshire Community YMCAs stands by our commitment to supporting our communities FOR A BETTER TOMORROW, and the success of our charitable work and community impact depends upon the success of our YMCA Annual Campaign.
The Y has had to reinvent ourselves, and find different ways to serve our communities! We have helped to feed the hungry, made and distributed masks, called home-bound members and seniors for wellness checks, held food and blood drives, cared for the children of emergency personnel and frontline workers, and altered programs to support virtual learning and membership opportunities. The Y has met all of the Covid-19 challenges head-on and will continue to serve our communities and their 2022 needs.
As we begin the road to recovery, more families than ever need financial assistance to take part in Y programs. These programs are committed to instilling values in youth, supporting the educational achievement gap, improve health outcomes socially, emotionally, and physically. Our Y is committed to strengthening the foundations of our communities FOR A BETTER TOMORROW through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility!
