November 28th is #GivingTuesdayCA. After the sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a day to give back to community.

In our communities, we continue to see families struggling financially and when expenses are prioritized recreational and health programs usually fall near the bottom of the list. It is during this time of stress that people most need to take care of their physical and mental health and stay connected to a caring community.

At YMCA Calgary, through our Strong Kids Campaign we provide individuals and families with financial assistance to participate in programs that enable lifelong healthy living and support their social and emotional wellbeing. So far in 2017, 19,741 individual experiences have been provided to children and youth to participate in day camps, swim lessons, climbing wall courses, Camp Chief Hector summer camp, child care and gym and sport classes.

Your donation will give the gift of the YMCA to a child who needs and wants it. Your support welcomes them to a caring community and gives them the chance to belong, grow, thrive and lead.

Give the gift of the YMCA to a child in need. Donate Today!
