The past weeks have been like no other for our YMCA. We have been challenged to manage the extraordinary impact this global crisis has on our business and our ability to serve our community. Yet, despite the challenges, stories of hope and resiliency already emerge.
Team members have rallied to take care of each other and our members; donors are stepping up in a big way; and our Y is flexing to offer access to childcare for families of essential workers and food distribution to those in need in partnership with Community Action of Winnebago & Boone Counties, Lifescape Community Services, Inc., AmeriCorps and Northern Illinois Food Bank.
As the Y, this is who we are – we work to stand up for those we care about when our community needs us most.
