Hunger doesnt end just because the week does. So, this happens every Friday - volunteers, board members, and staff gather in the lobby of the Coal Creek Family YMCA to fill nearly 200 backpacks with food for distribution to local students experiencing food insecurity. Having them to take home for the weekend, when school lunches aren't available, makes a world of difference. And its a need that was far bigger than we anticipated. There was a need in the community; schools reached out to us. We started out providing food for 25 or 30 students a week and it ramped up from there, - Forrest Jammer, Coal Creek Board Chair. Ensuring basic needs like hunger are met is vital if young people are to reach their fullest potential in spirit, mind, and body. Your support will also help fund summer day camp and financial scholarships for all our programs.

We need your help to make programs and services available to all.

$250 provides 25 students with a meal pack to support their nutrition over the weekend when school meals are not available.

$500 provides access for 10 young people to learn drowning prevention while building self-esteem and confidence in our swim lesson program.

$1,000 provides an entire summer of day camp for a child to build social and emotional skills while experiencing the outdoors.
