Because our Y is one of the strongest community service organizations in the area, government officials, Greenville County Schools, other non-profits, and healthcare organizations called on us to be a partner in the response to COVID-19. We were ready to respond in our branches and outside our walls!

As a donor, you are critical to the Y’s ability to continue community work every day to serve children, families, and individuals and to cover general operating expenses.

We pivoted in these challenging times, providing emergency child care for healthcare workers and law enforcement. We are distributing food to at least 100 families a week, considered among the most vulnerable in our area. We set up blood donation centers at our branches.

At the same time, we are offering programming for adults with Parkinson’s disease, important social interaction through the RECESS program for young adults with diverse abilities, life-saving swim lessons for all ages, afterschool care for children, summer day and overnight camp, and a variety of sports year-round.

For nearly 144 years, the Y has been a cornerstone of Greenville, and we continue to step up where we are needed the most.

Please give to the Y and keep our good work going. We deeply appreciate any help you are able to offer!



Maya and her mom

Maya and her mom lived in a local motel, receiving YMCA of Greenville food boxes for several weeks. On this day, we also handed out books and toys for the children. Fortunately, their family was able to move out and find a more permanent place to live. However, there are many others who remain at motels and are considered homeless. The Y is committed to delivering food and providing other support to these families with children who range from babies to teens.

Won’t you help us? Your commitment to the Y and our important work is needed NOW MORE THAN EVER.
