Hello YMCA of the Foothills Family!

I hope you and your family, like mine, got to share in the age-old tradition of giving thanks for the collective blessings we have in life. Here we are in Estrella Ranch in Phoenix during our Thanksgiving trip; I am deeply grateful for my wife, two children and the privilege it is to spend quality time with them enjoying nature.

There is no doubt that 2021 presented all of us with challenges that seemed, at times, unbearable. Your membership and program participation of our Y means the world to us, and during this season of gratitude, we wanted to thank you for all that you do to help support the Y.

As we look back on a year like no other, it’s important to acknowledge the amazing work of our Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers that helped us deliver the Y mission to as many people as possible. Their leadership is the cornerstone to the culture we have created: one that is firmly established in love, understanding and opportunity for ALL people.

In 2021, 33,521 members, participants and beneficiaries of Y programs have been served during this pandemic-impacted year. Now — more than ever — the YMCA Mission is at work!

Our organizational strategies to build a better future for all people were not derailed during the pandemic. In fact, our core beliefs in the service to Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility were strengthened. Simply put, we love and care deeply for our community, and we are thankful you are part of it.
