Each year, YMCA’s annual campaign raises funds to help support youth and families through their financial assistance program. In 2015, the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette Child Care Division provided over $649,000 in financial assistance to participants.
As the largest provider of non-profit early learning and afterschool enrichment in the Portland and Vancouver regional area, YMCA child care programs provide children with a nurturing atmosphere and dynamic curriculum that celebrates individuality, promotes self-esteem and encourages positive social interaction. Working together with families to make each program a supportive and challenging place for children to grow and develop.
If you’d like to contribute to this amazing program, here’s your chance. October 22nd, 2016 is the date for the “Night to Believe in Dreams”, benefit Dinner and Auction. Participating in this event will raise much needed funds for financial assistance for families and youth development programs. With your gift and support, the YMCA can continue to help our communities grow and flourish by supporting those in need. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as they do every day!
