As an organization which touches the lives of so many people across our region, through so many programs and avenues, it is sometimes hard to communicate the depth and breadth of our YMCA. Please take a moment to watch this video, and also visit our gallery to hear the stories of some extraordinary people who have been touched by the Y.
“I’m a single mom, so finances are very tight. Without the Y’s help, the children would not have been able to go to the camp. I would not have been able to finish my residency.
I saw the children grow emotionally. We became closer as a family. Josh, especially, grew as a person. He wasn’t that boy sitting in the corner anymore.
This is the reason why you should donate to the YMCA. Because these kids are our future. It is important to make sure our children grow up to be good citizens, and the YMCA program allows that.” -Irene
The Bangor Region YMCA has been supporting our community for 152 years. Through its incredible programs and services, the Y helps children, families, and seniors thrive.
We live in a time when people often feel isolated or divided. Our region is battling significant challenges, such as record obesity rates, opioid use, teen suicide, and an aging population.
But because of you, we live in a community with a strong Y that unites us. Because of you, we are effectively working together to make the Bangor region healthier and stronger.
Accessibility to the Y’s programs and services is not only essential to each person and family it touches: it is essential to the wellness of our region. And as a non-profit, the Y cannot thrive without YOU!
Please support this year’s Annual Campaign. Every dollar donated to the Y is an investment in our community.
All gifts are tax-deductible. You can choose to make a monthly gift, allowing you to expand the impact you can make.
