Inspired Giving | Fall 2022
As this Fall issue of Inspired Giving reaches your inbox, we are celebrating the end of a successful and memorable summer, shared among friends, neighbours and partners.
This Thanksgiving, we celebrated what we’re most grateful for this year – YOU!
Because of your continued support and for your contribution to the Y, you are what helps make the Y a welcoming and safe community for so many in their times of need.

"As we say in our family: 'In the race of life, not everyone starts at the same starting line.' My involvement with the Y has opened my eyes to the challenges and the needs of the community, and I feel very blessed and fortunate to have what I have today.
