THINK GLOBAL - GIVE LOCAL
ANNUAL SUPPORT CAMPAIGN
For over 150 years, the YMCA has been the heart of our community because of the belief that all children, adults and families deserve the chance to experience all the Y has to offer. For many in our community, though, the resources are not available to join the Y, send a child to preschool or summer camp or enroll in the before and after school program.
Together we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve. Every child deserves the chance to attend preschool and go to kindergarten ready to succeed; every family deserves the chance to grow stronger together through a membership to the Y; every child deserves the chance to learn how to swim.
At the Greater Wyoming Valley Area YMCA, children and families grow stronger together. We believe a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
The need in our community continues to grow each year. With your support, the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA will continue turning no one away for an inability to pay. Please send in your gift.
Thank you for your support!
#GivingTuesday begins in
GIVING TUESDAY IS A MOVEMENT THAT UNLEASHES THE POWER OF RADICAL GENEROSITY AROUND THE WORLD.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give.
NEPA GIVES DAY
Be a part of your community’s local day of giving. Whether you plan to donate to the Greater Wyoming Valley Area YMCA in general, or to your favorite YMCA Scholarship Fund, thank you to all those who donated this year! Because of NEPA Gives Day, your dollars will go further due to enhanced bonus funds provided by the Scranton Area Community Foundation and other NEPA Gives Sponsors.
This annual online giving event helps us tell about the impact our Y makes on our community; like feeding children, helping prevent chronic disease among seniors and expanding childcare services to name a few. Join us in June each year to help make a difference in Luzerne County.

The Y. For a better us. Stronger Together
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
