Thank you for your continued support of the Y as we continue to support our community. On June 1st, we began a phased approach to reopen our YMCA branches. Although we are re-opening our facilities and exploring the safest way to re-engage with our participants, the Y continues to provide programming that supports residents through COVID-19. Now more than ever, we need your support. Every dollar you give will help us provide services to those in need.
In these changing times, we ask that you continue to support the Y as we seek to help our community through basic needs, racial equity and inclusion for ALL.
SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY
When local and county shelter-in-place orders went into effect on Monday, March 16th, the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas pivoted traditional programs to provide free services and programs to our communities impacted by COVID-19. The CATALYST INITIATIVE was born, providing free emergency childcare to families with essential workers, food distribution to low-to-moderate income communities, pop-up supply distribution for necessary personal items and baby care, virtual learning opportunities for preschoolers and teens, blood drives and more. The Y is committed to the HEALTH & SAFETY OF ALL and is committed to continuing this work throughout the pandemic.
Thousands of pounds of food, including fresh produce, and hundreds of toiletry bags have been given out to thousands of families, seniors, and teens in need as part of the Y's food and necessities distribution.
Hundreds of families have received baby food, diapers, and personal hygiene items to care for their young children.
The health of ALL is not only a top priority, but it’s part of our mission. Due to COVID-19, our YMCA branches pivoted to offer childcare programming on a daily basis to help support our community. This program ended June 5th.
“I cannot be more pleased to have my three children in the YMCA Emergency program. From the moment they started attending the YMCA Emergency Care in McKinney, the staff greeted them with open arms and have treated them as if they were theirs. The YMCA Emergency care staff have been amazing. I truly appreciate the care they have shown my children and thankful for the time they take to make sure that the children have access to complete their digital learning. The children look forward to being in attendance every day. Words are simply not enough to express my sincere gratitude for the YMCA Emergency Care Program.“
- Connie, McKinney Emergency Childcare
