San Tan Valley — Formerly known as the Strong Kids and Families campaign, the Valley of the Sun YMCA Annual Community Support Campaign benefits children and families throughout our communities.
The YMCA is dedicated to positively impacting our local communities through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. Donors who support the campaign, enable the Y to continue to transform the lives of our most vulnerable children and families. Each dollar contributed to the campaign goes directly to making YMCA programs and membership available in 17 branch locations, inspiring positive and lasting social change and ensuring that no one is turned away due to a lack of ability to pay. “We served more than 400,000 children, teens and adults last year,” said George Scobas, CEO/President of the Valley Y.
The Y is known to most people as just a health and fitness facility, but few know the huge impact the organization has on the communities of Greater Phoenix and San Tan Valley through its social services and programs such as GED opportunities, youth mentorships, medical and dental services for uninsured youth and supporting seniors to eliminate isolation to name a few.
With your support, the YMCA can continue to inspire positive and lasting social change amongst our most vulnerable children and families.
The Copper Basin YMCA in San Tan Valley has set its fundraising goal at $60,000 for the local community. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu made a donation in the amount of $10,000 to ensure the YMCA can continue to serve kids and families in the local community.
