$1,000 Matching Gift

Last week, Tim and Beth Kennedy offered a $1,000 matching gift for YMCA program and membership scholarships to help us ensure that nobody is turned away for the inability to pay. Community members gave generously to help us reach that goal quickly. Thank you to Virginia Hahn, George Maruska, Suzanne Sherman, Braidy Powers, Stephanie Marshall, Sherry Simmons, and Steve Waver for helping us reach our goal! 

The first matching gift was such as success that there is now another match on the table. Swanson & Heeren also are offering a $1,000 matching gift to keep the support coming. $1,000 can give 30 youth the opportunity to participate in a program such as swim lessons, swim team, log rolling, soccer, archery, dance, or gymnastics.This holiday season, give the gift of health and wellness to those that may not be able to afford this type of experience. To give today, visit:
