Giving Back to Our Community

INSPIRING SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

At the Y, we make accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth & teen, improves the nation's health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.




Richardson YMCA will be supporting an initiative with other charitable organizations with the goal of strengthening our community. 

We want each of you and your players to help us support our community.

Each sports season we host giving back events throughout the season. Doing so gives kids, families and teams the opportunity to make a difference in our community.

 

Season Events




PASSBACK

Drop Off: March 25th at the Richardson YMCA concession tent. 
Pick Up: April 1st at the Richardson YMCA concession tent. 

PASSBACK: It takes one soccer ball to change the life of a child. It takes one jersey to make a child feel a sense of belonging. Donate new or gently used sporting equipment or apparel for youth in need in our community.  

Players needing equipment can take what was donated the weekend prior. All remaining equipment is giving to kids playing in our RISD outreach programs.

YMCA Annual Campaign

April 15th. 

Did you know 1 in 10 players participating in our youth sports programs are only able to do so because of gifts and support from volunteer donors? We do this by offering scholarships for programs to anyone who comes to us in need. 
Please consider a gift so the YMCA can continue to be a place children and families can turn to. Donation forms will be located at the concession stand or you can Donate Here today!

Silent Saturday; A Game Day for the Players

April 22nd. 

To develop as successful players kids need to make their own decisions in soccer, right or wrong. This helps them think on their feet during a game and not rely on instruction from the sideline.
 
More information: Why Silent Saturday and Hallmark's Silent Saturday video.



Make a difference in our community, please consider participating in the above events!
