Your Thanks: Many show support for YMCA programs
In 2013, the YMCA of Northern Rock County received record-setting support for the YMCA staff, volunteers, members and children in various programs. The YMCA awarded more than $277,000 in financial aid and scholarships to more than 5,000 children and families who are faced with financial limitations. The YMCA is open for everyone, and no one is ever turned away due to financial limitations.
I would like to extend a sincere thank you for the generous financial support from more than 1,000 individuals and organizations for the YMCA Scholarship Program in 2013.
Recently, the YMCA was fortunate to experience the energy and passion of community support! The YMCA hosted the Freedom Plastics Foundation YMCA Family Fun Day, the Parker YMCA grand opening ceremony and the Air Products Tropical Fiesta. Collectively, with the support of volunteers and local business financial sponsorship, the YMCA was able to offer the three events for the community. The three events were attended by more than 4,000 people and raised more than $30,000 for the YMCA Scholarship Program.
The YMCA would like to say thank you to the hundreds of local businesses and the thousands of volunteers in our community who supported, with their time, talent or financial contributions, a variety of YMCA programs and events in 2013! Happy New Year.

CEO, YMCA of Northern Rock County
