Healthy Communities Support the Y Y Stories

How Michelle’s family helps other families at the Y

Family of three

Our annual Gratitude Report celebrates our generous donors and shares what inspires them to support the YMCA of Greater Toronto. Michelle and her family are members of the Scarborough YMCA:

“We are so grateful, not only for what joining the Y has meant for our family, but for what it means for our community. We were New Canadians at one point in our lives, and when I see how diversity is embraced and championed at the Y, it warms my heart. The GTA can be a cold and lonely place to a newcomer, but not at the Y. So I’m proud to be a Y member, but even more proud to be a Y donor. I made my first donation to the Y because of the impact it’s had on my family. I know I’m not only investing in the ongoing health of my family…but the health of my community too.”

Support from donors like Michelle and her family mean that families can access the YMCA programs they need to support physical, social and mental health through financial assistance.
