I have been a proud supporter of the Y's Annual Campaign every year since joining the Metro Y of the Oranges as a Program Intern in 2000. 

For me, the Annual Campaign is our mission in motion. It is our responsibility to ensure that everyone has the ability to participate in all of the life-affirming aspects of Y programs regardless of their ability to pay. It's how we build community and ensure equity and inclusion.

The past 2 years has been filled with so many challenges. I believe the Y offers an opportunity for us all to rebuild ourselves, not just physically but socially and emotionally too. The isolation of the pandemic has highlighted the importance of relationships and the need for more community support. At the Y, we strive to make everyone welcome and included. Together has never been more vital.

I hope you will join us in this work!

Story

There's a bright future ahead, but the only way we’ll get there is TOGETHER. Join us in healing our neighborhoods as we direct our community funding to these critical and essential services urgently needed to support the response and recovery of our region.

In these times of financial hardship, this cause is more urgent than ever.

While the world around us has changed, the Y has remained a constant force of good, providing critical services that are helping our communities impacted from the crises of the past year. In addition to health and wellness programs the Y is known for, did you know the West Essex Y has provided:

  • Delivered 26,140 pounds of food to those at risk along with fresh vegetables from the West Orange School Community Gardens
  • Gave 431 kids an amazing summer camp experience
  • Provided financial aid to 1 in 4 kids in our Early Childcare Learning Center
  • Changed 48 lives by teaching kids how to swim through our free Safety Around Water Program
  • Utilized the skills of 100 volunteers to strengthen our communities
  • Provided a safe and welcoming community for senior citizens
  • Provided 107 teens with a free Middle School Initiative program 

Through donations and pledges received during the Annual Campaign, the Y is able to help individuals and families access programs that improve their health and well-being, regardless of their economic status.

But we can’t do it without you. By donating to the Y, you can help us reach more people in need with our programs and services.

THANK YOU!
