Y Heroes: Karen & Eduardo, Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA

29 March 2017

Karen has a job that starts early in the morning. The Y was the only before-school child care site for her son to attend in those early hours before school. Karen is eternally grateful for the people and programs the Y provides. She credits the Y with so much and doesn't know where she would be without the help and support over the years. It's stories like hers that make the Y what it is to the communities it serves; It's about people.  

As a part of our 2017 Annual Giving Campaign, we are showcasing a different person (or family) at each of our family centers. We are calling this our Y Heroes project. This video platform is a way for us to highlight people and/or program areas that have been positively impacted by the dollars we raise as a non-profit organization and relate back to each community our Association serves.

When you give to the Y, you continue to strengthen our community and move us all forward. As the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y uses your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood. Your gift ensures that the Y’s programs and services will be open to all. Consider making a gift today. www.ymcashr.org/GIVE
