WHAT WE ARE DOING
Our team is working nearly around the clock to focus our energy and resources to support those most vulnerable during this crisis. We've opened 11 family centers to provide care for over 700 children of essential personnel including health care workers and first responders. We're serving meals to thousands of youth who rely on schools for their food. We're calling thousands of senior members to see if they need help, and much more. READ BALTIMORE SUN STORY
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Membership Matters: Your Membership Dues Are Make It or Break It for Us Right Now
Like many, we’ve made painful sacrifices to adjust to this new reality. Over 2,000 Y associates had to be furloughed. We are reducing expenses everywhere and making pay cuts. We are doing our best to keep a skeleton workforce while we help our communities' most vulnerable families. But we can't do it, and be here for you when this is over, without your help.
The level of membership revenue we can retain determines our future. Your membership helps those in need, it helps give work to some of our furloughed associates, and it helps us remain viable after this crisis is over.
During this period, all membership dues are considered charitable donations supporting our critical community work and year-end tax letters will be provided.
We are deeply grateful to you for sticking with us, and with those most in need during this crisis. Thank you.
