Staff Report From Augusta CEO

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020

In a time where communities are more divided than ever, the Greater Augusta Family YMCA is a key resource to bridge gaps, bring people together and strengthen relationships among “Us,” including the youth, adults and seniors who contribute daily to the betterment of our community. Through the continued generosity of our community each year, the Y has been successful in achieving this goal.
This year’s “Game On: For a Better Us” campaign was launched Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at 11:30 a.m. at the WOW! Club at SRP Park where this year’s goal of $1,505,000 was announced. These funds are used to support more than $2 million scholarships awarded annually for all types of Y programs.  No one is ever turned away from the Y for their inability to pay.
The Y understands the importance of learning from one another and helping all of us to reach our fullest potential. Here in CSRA the Y aims to bring all together with one common ground through the mission of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
“We are thrilled and very grateful with the way each year’s campaign has helped so many members in our deserving community,” said Danny McConnell, President and CEO. “This is a true representation of how we at the Y are working every day to solidify the “Us” that holds us together as a community.”
