YMCA Buffalo Niagara’s 2022 annual campaign began Thursday. Collectively, the association is seeking the community’s support to help reach its fundraising goal of $590,000 by April 7.
A press release stated, “Gifts to the YMCA’s annual campaign help fund vital programs and services that empower youth, improve community health, and provide support to our community’s most vulnerable. Money raised by the community for the annual campaign will also go towards ‘Access for All,’ the Y’s financial aid initiative to provide membership and program access, plus equitable opportunities for people of all income levels.”
It further stated, “Every gift, no matter the size, helps make it possible for the Y to address critical community needs and issues, including bridging the achievement gap, combating hunger and food insecurity, making kids of all ages safe in the water, and access to health and wellness resources.”
Anyone wishing to support the Y’s mission work can do so online at www.YMCABN.org/give or by reaching out to their local YMCA branch.
