With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
Here at the Y, we are proud to turn no one away for an inability to pay. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we provide financial assistance to children, adults and families from our community, allowing them to benefit from all our Y has to offer!
LAST YEAR, WE AWARDED OVER $491,000
STRENGTHENING THE COMMUNITY WE LOVE
These are challenging times. Bonds are frayed and the concept of community feels distant. But the Greater Scranton YMCA has an answer to these challenges. We bring people together. And by bridging divides, we’re strengthening our sense of “togetherhood.”
From nutrition to mental health, and early childhood education to diabetes prevention – the Y addresses our community’s most pressing needs and enhances our human connections. This critical work provides possibility to thousands of men, women and children here in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
As a charity, we rely on the support of our friends, neighbors, families, and even strangers to fulfill our mission.
Thank you for your commitment to the Greater Scranton YMCA. Today, we’re asking for your support to our 2023 Annual Support Campaign so we can strengthen our community and continue supporting our neighbors.
“I’m very grateful and appreciative of the discount both my husband and I receive for our daughter to attend daycare part-time at the YMCA. With everything going up in cost these days, this discount is truly what helped us be able to afford sending our daughter to daycare. By sending her to daycare, I’m able to continue to work and contribute to providing for my family.” – Early Learning Center Parent
Gifts from our community partners made this story possible. Together, we can provide a Y membership for those struggling with chronic disease; child care for parents who need to go to work; a safe, nurturing space for kids to go before and after school; and outreach to seniors who are feeling isolated. Because strong communities are built by people who care about one another.
