Please join us Thursday, November 9th for the YMCA’s annual Hour of Impact event.  During this breakfast event, we will showcase how community collaborators, conveners, and leaders like you have united to serve individuals and families through YMCA programs.  The event will include a panel of community leaders and impact testimonials that highlight how gifts create access to wellness, nutrition, education, leadership, and childcare programming.  You are invited to the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park for a celebration of stories and a call to support and serve individuals and households throughout West Michigan through YMCA programs that help create thriving futures for all.

Proceeds from the event provide for critical financial assistance support for members of our community.
