Our Annual Campaign kicked off on April 1st! Fundraising efforts go to assist the many programs that the New Castle Community YMCA offers to youths and families. Co-Chairs of our Member to Member Annual Campaign Dorice Shover and Carole Sheen had this message to share to thier fellow New Castle Community YMCA members about the importance of donating to the Annual Campaign:

"Hi I am Dorice Shover and this is Carole Sheen, co-chairs of the Community Annual Campaign for Youth for the New Castle YMCA.   

You probably know that the Y helps adults, kids and families live healthier lives. 

But did you know that the Y provides financial assistance to those who can’t afford membership and programs on their own?  Our Annual Campaign provides scholarships to nearly 1,000 community members each year.

The Y is committed to empowering youth to reach their personal potential, especially at a critical time in their young lives when they are at risk to start unhealthy behaviors, such as substance abuse and school drop-out.  Nearly 300 local teens are offered free summer memberships through our Seventh grade initiative.

These are just a few ways in which your donated dollars help our local children and families.  Over our combined 58 years of involvement with the New Castle Y, Carole and I have seen firsthand the difference the Y makes in our community.

Please join us, through your generosity, to ensure that all of our neighbors can reach their potential.

Thank you!"
