At the Y, community support is our cause, and we are proud to report that through our financial assistance program, we have awarded more than $150,000 to over 400 community families in 2010. This enables these individuals to experience the benefit of participating in Y programs and activities. To those who have contributed to our Annual Support Campaign, we are most grateful to you and look forward to seeing you at the Y!
