YMCA Annual Community Impact Campaign

February 29, 2012

Announcements, Mississippi, MS

 

The Frank P. Phillips YMCA kicked off its 2012 Annual Community Impact Campaign on Monday, February 27.  The non-profit organization’s fundraising campaign will continue through March 26. The purpose of the campaign is to insure that the local Ys can continue to offer programs for their three areas of focus: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

 At the heart of community life in Lowndes County, the mission-driven YMCA is “a place to belong”, where one can live the values that guide and unite our members…..caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. The YMCA provides a special opportunity for kids and adults to join life-changing and life-saving programs, daily.

YMCA volunteers will contact potential donors, over the next four weeks, to see if they can contribute to this year’s campaign.  If you would like to make a contribution to the Annual Community Impact Campaign, please contact Andy Boyd at 662-328-7696.  Gifts of any size are welcome and are tax deductible

“The focus of the Y is to nurture the potential of our kids, to promote healthy living for young and old alike, and to foster a sense of social and community responsibility,” says Andy Boyd, Executive Director of  the Y.  “That’s a tall order, but with the help of the community, we are confident these goals can be met.”

The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits, strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Across the U.S., 2,700 Ys engage 21 million men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Anchored in more than 10,000 communities, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.
