Thank you to everyone who supported our 31st Annual Auction Gala at the Stevens Estate. With the help of those who attended and bid in our auction, we were able to raise over $100,000 to fund our youth and food development program.
Through donations at the Merrimack Valley YMCA’s Auction for the Food Program Shout-Out, we raised almost $30,000 to combat food insecurity in the Merrimack Valley! This money will help us feed over 6,500 families with a hot meal.
Our net proceeds of $145,000 from the Auction will help support our Teen Programming at the Lawrence YMCA. At the event, Juliana Chatman spoke about the importance of the Adelante Program in her life and the opportunities it provided her. Our efforts have made the difference not only to Juliana Chatman but to all the other teens who see the YMCA as their lifeline for a brighter future.
Whether it’s providing a healthy meal or snack to our youth and teens, or giving youth the opportunity to learn life skills in our programs, together we can deliver high quality development opportunities that help youth learn, grow, and thrive. Together we are #mvymcaSTRONG.
