Your Fellow Members Who Give Back

James Stillwell

When our centres had to close during the pandemic, members like James started donating their monthly membership fees, ensuring our charity could provide essentials like emergency shelter and food security programming.

"If you're in a position to donate, it helps ensure there’s a fun place for kids to go after school, or to ensure those who otherwise couldn’t afford to take part in the Y’s programming can still contribute and belong. We all grow from that. When you give to the Y, it’s to support healthy community for all of us, yourself included — and that’s a wonderful feeling!"

—James Stillwell, monthly donor to the YMCA
