DARKE COUNTY, OH – The YMCA of Darke County recently kicked off its annual Community Partners fundraising campaign.

“As a longtime member of the YMCA and this year’s campaign chairman, I’m excited to be part of such a great organization. The YMCA is an integral part of our community, and is truly changing lives,” said John Swallow, 2017 Campaign Chairman.

The goal is to raise $200,000 by June 9.

The campaign enables the Y to have the resources to provide scholarships for those with financial need so they can have access to a high-quality wellness facility and benefit from the Y experience.

The YMCA impacts people’s lives every day. From health and fitness programs, to summer camp experiences, to afterschool programming, to literacy and character building programs, they touch kids, adults and families in nearly every neighborhood.

Keeping one’s health in check, providing opportunities for kids to learn and interact with others in a safe and positive environment, and helping families access a place in their neighborhood where they can have quality time together is essential.

“The Y believes that positive, lasting personal and social change can come about only when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community.

The generosity of our neighbors is what the Y counts on to help in this life-changing work. While we are grateful to those who have supported us in the past, we know we must engage more people in the YMCA cause in order to continue our work for generations to come,” said YMCA CEO Sam Casalano.

You could be contacted by a campaigner directly, but you don’t have to wait. You can make your contribution at any time.

Contributions can be made at the YMCA of Darke County in Greenville at 301 Wagner Avenue, or in Versailles at 10242 Versailles-SE Rd.

For more information about the campaign, contact Sam Casalano at the Y at 548-3777.
