Dear Friend of the Y,
While we continue to face uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, one thing is clear: Because of the generosity of our donors, the Y has been able to deliver hot, nourishing meals to Holocaust survivors and other older adults, provide emergency cash assistance to our neighbors in need, create a robust virtual event platform for members and the public, and tried to retain as many full-time staff as possible.
Because of our donors, the Y is a community of hope and care. We are able to do so much for our neighbors — to foster a better quality of life for people of all backgrounds and to quickly respond to the community’s ever-changing needs.
I’m proud to share Our Commitment to Our Community Never Wavers, a recent post by Y CEO Martin Englisher on the Jewish Community Center of North America blog. This snapshot of the Y’s efforts during the pandemic is a testament to our donors, funding partners, and program participants’ commitment to our community and to caring for the most vulnerable among us.
On behalf of all those the Y serves, you have our deepest gratitude.
Chief Development and Social Services Officer
