Letter: All about families

One of the YMCA in Greenfield’s focus areas is fostering healthy living for all ages. In our preschool, childcare programs, youth sports, summer camps and fitness classes, our members learn that nutrition and regular exercise are the keys to wellness. Our Y provides programs and facilities for children, families and seniors to improve their cardio fitness, but more important, we provide programs that strengthen their minds, bodies and spirits. Here is a letter from one of our members.

“Dear YMCA,

“I wanted to take a minute to let you know how much my family and I appreciate the YMCA. I recently was able to obtain a membership due to the sliding fee scale. I am a single mom and was able to sign up for a family plan because we qualified due to our low income. There is no other place in Greenfield or the Greenfield area that offers this.

“My kids and I are able to come to the Y several times a week and spend some quality time together working to stay healthy. The winter has been especially cold this year and having our work out time was a nice addition to warm weekly activities. My kids love weight training and all of the cardio machines. I am so grateful and appreciative that the extra monies are there to help us. Fitness is important to me and I want to make sure I instill that in my children as well. Thank you again.”

Money should not stand in the way of a family that wants to improve its health and grow closer together.

Please join me in supporting the Y’s April annual campaign, so more families like the one above can benefit from the programs we offer.

The Y. So Much More.
