Dear DCFY Member:
You know the challenges that we face in Dorchester County. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential.
More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. Playing outside has become a rarity. Face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But where society falls short, the Y - and donors like you - step in.
Together we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve.
Yes, you know the challenges we face but just like the Y, you see the opportunity to make a difference. The Y is your partner, standing with you to strengthen our community.
Make a donation today and take your first step in making a difference and building a better us.
You can donate online below or you may also feel free to send us a check or call us directly at 410-221-0505. For a better you.
For a better community. For a better us.™
JoAnn Hansen Chief Executive Officer
The Dorchester County Family YMCA will conduct its 1ST ROAD RALLY & TREASURE HUNT has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 18th, 2016.
The purpose of the rally is to bring attention to the easy access to water- ways in Dorchester County, and the danger families face doing simple things with their children like fishing and boating. As part of the Ys mission, we focus on social responsibility and feel it’s important to educate our community on water safety.
Prizes for the top three point collectors include:
- Round of Golf for 4 - Courtesy of the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay
- $50 Gift Certificate from Sei Bella Salon
- Gift Certificates from various area restaurants
- Season passes to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge
- Gift Certificate from Eagle Cleaning
- Portrait Sitting from Linden Tree Photography
- Movie passes and MORE!
This is a great activity to do with your family. All you need to do is register, pick up your "passport" on the day of the event and DRIVE around our beautiful county!
