An update from your Henry County YMCA

Dear Valued Y Member,

We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the challenging circumstances related to this pandemic.

At the Henry County YMCA, everything we do is guided by our commitment to support our community, and this is even more critical now. When you belong to the Y, you not only manage your wellness, you enable the Y to respond to the needs of others in our community. This is what makes our Y a charitable organization. In difficult times, the Y pivots in response to immediate needs and finds ways to use our resources to offer solutions - and you can help. 

Stay with Us – Your YMCA Membership Options

The Y has always served those most in need, but we can’t do it alone. We ask you to stay with us and keep your membership. Not as a facility user or as a consumer,but, like your other charitable or religious organizations, as a cause-driven member. Being a Y member means that you are a part of a cause-driven organization that is committed to making a difference in our community.

To accommodate state and local ordinances, the Henry County YMCA is having to change our reopening date. We will let you know as soon as that date is solidified.  In the meantime, we are moving anyone on the April 5th membership draft back to April 20th.

If you’re able, I’m asking you to convert your monthly membership dues to a charitable contribution to the Henry County YMCA, starting with your April 20 membership draft. Your YMCA membership always has been about more than access to a building. Your Y membership is about making connections and building relationships. It’s about ensuring everyone—no matter who they are or where they come from—gets the support they need to reach their full potential. It’s about making your contribution to a stronger community.And we need that contribution more than ever right now. Should you choose to keep your membership active and make it a donation, no further action is required.

We also understand that you may have financial obligations; and naturally, we will place your membership on hold at no cost during this time should you wish to do so. As soon as our Y reopens, your membership will automatically resume. Of course, no Joining Fee would be required. If you would like to place your membership on hold, please contact our Membership Staff at directors@henrycountyymca.org with your full name and phone number. Please be patient as we are all working on a limited schedule, primarily remotely.

In order to ensure that we are able to process your request in time for our April membership draft, please contact us by April 6th. If you run into difficulty after that date, please contact us directly and we will be happy to work with you to find a solution.

We are committed to being there for you and our community when the tough work of recovery begins. In the meantime, we need you to be there for us—so we’re able to jump back into action when the time comes.

So please, stay with us. Please continue supporting your Henry County YMCA, and consider taking an additional step to donate at www.henrycountyymca.org/about/giving-donating  to support our financial assistance program. We invite you to support each other and your community, and we offer our deepest thanks for your gift.

Together, we will come through this pandemic stronger than ever. We wish you and your family good health. Thank you for being a part of the Y family.

Yours in service,

Chris Williams
