It is that time of year again at the Haselwood YMCA. Aria and I are helping to raise money for the Haselwood YMCA Annual Campaign. Each year, the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties holds its annual campaign. Every year, the Haselwood YMCA Annual Campaign raises money to provide access to those in our community you may need a little assistance. The YMCA provides free membership to foster children and also provides financial assistance to community members who may have trouble affording YMCA memberships or class tuition for youth programming.
We are once again supporting the dance department. This year, the dance department's fundraising goal is $5,000. The dance students, like Aria, are encouraged to put philanthropy in motion by reaching out to their personal community, friends and family and ask them to help us raise money for the Haselwood YMCA Annual Campaign.
To give an example of how these funds help our community -
$335 provides one year of Y membership and dance classes for one student
$5,000 (our 2019 dance dept goal) provides one year of Y membership and dance classes for fifteen (15) students
Personally, Aria and I have committed to raising $800 for the dance department’s annual campaign. Aria and I are asking you to help us meet this goal by using the link here to donate.
While Aria has entered Kindergarten, we are a homeschooling family. This means that we rely on the YMCA for youth programs to provide her with opportunities to learn, play and be with other kids her own age. This year, she is particpating in two Progressive Dance classes, Ballet & Jazz. She also does Beginning Painting and their homeschool programming for Climb and P.E. With as many interests as she has, I am excited that our YMCA can provide so may options. She loves going to the Y and greeting everyone she can. She is recognized by many of the youth staff who regularly engage her in conversation and give her ample opportunity to see kindness, compassion and respect.
Every little bit helps and no donation is too small. From $5 to $500, thank you for supporting our goal.
