Why Do I Work At The Y?
No matter where you're from, if you were part of your local YMCA, you truly stay with the organization, regardless of where your new home becomes. You connect with your new community's Y, and you feel welcomed.
Some of the things the YMCA has done that has really touched my heart and soul include the Annual Campaign, and seeing the families and how much the Y has impacted them by being a part of this organization; there's also our yearly coat and food drives; the Silver Sneaker potlucks, to help get that community involved; and youth basketball, drawing so many kids with so many different abilities! The West Toledo Y has a partnership with Special Olympics Power Lifting in Toledo. They come here and use our facility. That’s just an amazing thing to see and wonderful to experience.
