As we approach the holidays, there’s a lot to be thankful for at the YMCA this year. We opened a brand-new 40,000 sq. ft. Hallandale Beach YMCA, we began construction on a new L.A. Lee YMCA in Sistrunk, our Youth Development Team has brought in millions of dollars of revenue, opened a new camp and afterschool in Aventura; we strengthened our partnerships with organizations like the DeLuca Foundation, the Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins, Children’s Services Council and The Children’s Trust; and we provided over 10,000 members daily with healthy living options.
These are exciting times at the Y! We’re setting our vision and goals toward serving more people and making a bigger impact. We want to grow our afterschool program, get more members physically fit and eating healthier, make more children active and safer around water.
We impact thousands of families each day and I know we can impact even more. As we near the end of the year, we’re on track to finish the year strong and position ourselves for a great 2020.
I hope you and your family have healthy and happy holidays!
