Impact Newsletter

Volume 5, Issue 2 2022


Dear Y Community, We hope this note finds you and your loved ones healthy and well. Across our region and throughout our branches, camps, and program sites, our programs and services have already enriched the lives of youth and families this year. Children and teens attended day camps and overnight camps this summer, making new friends and growing social and emotional skills. Kids and families across the county jumped into Y pools, splashing and swimming together, and learning how to be safe around water.

As we move into the fall, the opportunity is before us to do even more this year to meet our communities' most pressing needs. Together, our incredible teams of volunteers, partners, and staff are poised to meet these needs and create the inclusive and equitable future we want for our children.

In this Impact News edition, you’ll learn more about how, with your support, we are keeping kids safe around water, Whole Person Health is impacting lives, members are celebrating inclusion, and our recent signature A.K. Guy Awards Event continues now in its 34th year. Thank you for walking alongside us in this vital work. We cannot do it without you.

In community and gratitude,    

Loria Yeadon 
President & CEO
YMCA of Greater Seattle
