A GIVING MOVEMENT
 CUMBERLAND FARMS DONATES $2,792 to YMCA

On October 3rd, Cumberland Farms celebrated the grand opening of their new Sanford store. And in a commitment to give back to the Sanford community, celebrations continued for the entire month of October - with donations to the local YMCA. 

Cumberland Farms' total donation to the Y? An impressive $2,792.

"We want to thank the Cumberland Farms team for their incredibly generous support and share our gratitude for this partnership," said Andy Orazio, the Y's CEO. 
 WALGREENS SUPPORTS YMCA

From October 16 to October 30, Walgreens customers had the opportunity to donate either $1 or $5 to support the Y's community-strengthening programs when making their purchase.

Ed Carr, the Sanford Walgreens Store Manager, recently presented the Y with a check for $501.

"We thank the Walgreens team for their efforts, and our community for choosing to support our cause of strengthening communities," said Merilee Perkins, the Y's Senior Program Director.

GIVE FOR A BETTER US.
At the Y, we believe we have something special - a sense of community - and that everyone should have access to it, along with the programs and services that help us learn, grow, and thrive. 

Last year, the Sanford-Springvale YMCA provided over $194,000 in scholarships to deserving kids, adults and families. With your help, we were proud to share our Y with 712 children, seniors, and families last year who otherwise might not have become part of our Y family. 

But we need your help. Every dollar donated to the Sanford-Springvale YMCA has a lasting impact on the people of Sanford and surrounding communities.

HELP SUBWAY RAISE FUNDS FOR YMCA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM!



This March, Subway is making it easy to support the Y's community-strengthening programs. 

Print and present this card with any regular sub purchase between 3/1 and 3/31 at participating Subway locations, and Subway will donate $1 of proceeds to the Sanford-Springvale YMCA's Annual Giving Campaign. 

Last year the Y provided scholarships to 712 individuals to make membership, childcare, and wellness opportunities available to all - regardless of income.

Participating Subway Locations:
  • Sanford 
  • Springvale
  • East Waterboro
  • Berwick

Together, we can make a difference.
