YOUR SUPPORT, OUR COMMUNITY
2021 COMMUNITY IMPACT
For over 150 years the Meadville Family YMCA has been committed to supporting the communities our YMCA’s are surrounding and located in. We do this by providing quality programming through membership, child care, youth sports, and more!
During the past year, we have given back close to $142,000 to the community in the form of scholarships for membership, child-care, and youth sports programming.
I am appreciative to host the YMCA’s Y Kids Club at Fairview/Fairmont Housing. Along with 3 volunteers and 2 Allegheny College Bonner Service Leader Program, we plan activities that include art & STEM activities, outdoor play, board games, reading practice, and homework help. We also provide hot meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our priorities are to provide a predictable yet relaxed and homelike environment, along with consistent caregivers and helping to provide a foundation for kids to develop their full potential. We are seeing an increase in social skills, decision making abilities, and positive contributions to the community. My volunteers, staff and I are honored to be a part of the Fairview/Fairmont community. We feel very welcomed and supported and have already learned so much about community during our time here. This spring and summer, we look forward to getting to know more neighbors and working together to beautify both the apartment complex and Huidekoper Park. We have already started some seeds which will be planted in our garden space, and plans are being made for a natural play area.
