When you join the Y, you're joining more than just a gym. 

And while we have everything you could want from a gym membership, we also have our community at heart. With school starting back soon, we are supporting local students in need by providing backpacks and school supplies to students who need them.

Bring a new school backpack or new school supplies* to any YMCA of Greenville location between Aug. 4-19 and join, and we'll waive the joining fee as our thank you for supporting your community. When you join, you're immediately becoming part of the Y mission by helping a student prepare for the school year. 

Exercising your heart in more ways than one is what the Y is all about. 

Join the Y by visiting any YMCA of Greenville location. Want to know more about a Y membership? Contact us and a membership specialist will answer all your questions or call 864-412-0288. 

*We asked the school system what supplies students tend to need most, and here's the list they gave us:

  • Backpacks – no specific brand, but nylon backpacks are best for durability
  • Composition notebooks
  • 3-ring Binders – 1”, 2” and 3” and those with plastic view window on the front are needed the most
  • Pocket Folders – folders with the paper fasteners in the middle are needed most
  • Notebook paper – both wide ruled and college ruled
  • Glue sticks
  • Washable markers
  • Pens
  • Pencils
