Welcome to My Fundraising Page
Stepping Up For A Cause
As you may know I’ve been an active board member of the Collins & Katz Family YMCA in WLA for the past eight years. During the pandemic, even though our doors were closed, we carried out some very meaningful community services .
We provided showers to 1,001 unsheltered individuals.
We’ve had a weekly food distribution that continues each Thursday. We ‘ve provided over 100,000 meals to date.
We had a daily learning center for students who were struggling through remote learning or had no access to the internet necessary to connect to their classrooms.
This summer we provided a full-day Summer Enrichment Camp at no cost to families that qualify.
The C&K family YMCA is the site for monthly American Red Cross blood drives where we have collected 512 pints, helping to save 1,536 lives.
Every year there is a Kids to Camp program that provides scholarships to underprivileged kids to experience camp.
The Youth in Government program has teen delegates who gather weekly over the seven-month program period to discuss and debate issues facing their communities and to work together to create potential, policy-based solutions. During the course, delegates write bills and select governmental positions to role play. The program culminates with a five-day Model Legislature and Court at the California State Capitol in Sacramento.
The water safety program brings children from our local elementary schools who cannot swim and teaches them water safety skills.
We also provided membership scholarships and reduced rates for those in need.
Membership dues collected help to maintain the facility, but donations are really what drives our community services.
I will be participating in the Stair Climb for Los Angeles this October at the LA coliseum. I hope you will sponsor me as a way of donating to the C&K YMCA. To donate, please click on the blue 'Donate Now' button.
