75,393 LIVES TOUCHED
The pandemic continued to disrupt education, child care and food accessibility, and create social and mental health barriers due to masking and social distancing restrictions. Every single person was impacted in some way.
A pandemic-ready YMCA put into play planning to tackle the challenges – and then some. We stepped up and stepped in to provide positive outreach, invaluable resources and reliable, safe, virtual and physical spaces that provided both physical and mental wellness beneﬁts. Through membership, programs, giving and volunteerism, the Y touched the lives of 75,393 people.
