The Y is a positive force in this community. Together, we take on the challenges that shape our Greenwood’s future. From tackling the achievement gap to teaching healthy habits for a lifetime or giving people the chance to strengthen our community through volunteering, everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. YMCA donors, volunteers, members, and partners like you make the difference. Your gift can help Greenwood and everyone in and around it shine.
You may be asking “What in the world is #GivingTuesday?”
“Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.”
You can celebrate #GivingTuesday with us. Here’s how you can participate: http://www.greenwoodymca.org/givingtuesday/

“A long look in the mirror, and some deep soul searching revealed to me that I was on the edge of hypocrisy, and that’s not me.” Lisa Emily, YMCA Member
