I love the YMCA. People who know me might think I work for them because of all the publicizing I do for their activities, camps, events, and facilities. My family joined 5 years ago back when we were a family of 4. Since then we have participated in everything from the Parents Morning Out program to swim lessons to soccer and basketball leagues to tennis outings that have counted as a date night. We are Y people.

Right now, the YMCA is in the middle of their annual fundraising drive to raise money to support their community involvement, availability of scholarships for activities, and family programming. Their WhY It Matters campaign makes sure children of all economic backgrounds learn to swim, have after school activities, and get an opportunity to play organized sports. It helps physically challenged kids get in the pool with their adaptive swim program. It gives seniors life-saving health knowledge. It lets homeless children have a safe and secure place to call their own.
