However, we at the YMCA will continue to deliver our charitable work to those in need living in our community through our Men’s Residence, New American Welcome Center, and Southern Community Services during this time. Individuals experiencing homelessness, newcomers to the country, and families in crisis will need all the support they can get to overcome these unprecedented challenges.
The YMCA of York and York County has been a cornerstone of York since 1855, surviving countless hardships and trials over the years. We will make it through this situation and come out the other side stronger than we ever have been, but we still need your support.
The aforementioned charitable programs and the YMCA’s maintenance require significant financial investments to continue operating. While we are closed, our staff will work hard to accelerate the progress on various projects throughout our association so that we will be better than ever when we reopen our doors. We truly value everyone in the Y family and hope that you will stay with us despite these unfortunate circumstances.
While we are closed, we will continue to engage you with dynamic virtual content. We will send out emails and craft social media posts with workouts you can do at home, new recipes to try out in your kitchen, and healthy lifestyle tips for everyday living. We will also take this time to show you the impact you make possible here at the YMCA through detailed profiles of our various charitable programs, including our Men’s Residence, New American Welcome Center, and Southern Community Services.
In closing, we know that life is far from easy right now. However, only by coming together as a community and being there for our neighbors can we show the world that York is a place where people rise up in the face of adversity. At times like these when the challenges seem overwhelming, there’s often nothing else you can do except press on!
