Friends and supporters of the Merrimack Valley YMCA gathered on Saturday, March 23, 2019 for our 28th Annual Auction Gala. As a nonprofit organization, the YMCA never turns away someone who wants to be a part of the Y and through the generosity and support received that evening, we raised more than $170,000 to provide scholarships and financial assistance so the Y can continue to be here for all. By providing educational support and enrichment, teen leadership programs, water safety classes, summer camp and outdoor education, healthy meals or access to health and wellness programs, the YMCA provides opportunities for children and adults to grow and thrive.
The Y’s activities have significantly enhanced public access to fitness, health, educational enrichment and numerous other services; especially among children, the disabled, the homeless, the needs associated with an aging community and other at-risk populations.
Thank you to all who attended this event. It is because of your continuous support in many ways, especially financially, that the Merrimack Valley YMCA reached our goal in providing opportunities to our entire community.
