Like you, we believe that every child deserves a chance to run, play, learn and grow as an individual. It is this belief that makes the Greater Scranton YMCA the heart of our community. Thanks to generous donors like you, we are able to provide opportunities for all children to connect with others and contribute positively to our community.
“My Julie loves camp this year, she says it’s the best ever! Thanks so much for running this program so well. It gives me such peace of mind that my little one is so happy and well cared for while I’m at work. We’ve been members at the Greater Scranton YMCA for several years now and it’s like our second home. I’d be lost without the team and their youth programs. Thank you!"
Gifts to the Greater Scranton YMCA made this story possible. The 2019 Annual Support Campaign is your chance to help low-income and underserved families, adults, older adults and individuals with disabilities experience all the YMCA has to offer. 100% of every dollar you give in this campaign stays right here in the Greater Scranton community.
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
