Season of Community
You can make a difference for a child this season by participating in our Holiday Giving Tree program.

Please consider selecting an ornament and helping a family in need this holiday season. Over 140 children are included on our tree. The kids and families we support are grateful for any help you can provide!

Giving trees are located in our Nir Family YMCA and Midtown YMCA lobbies. All gifts need to be wrapped and returned by December 11th.

Thank you in advance for your generous support. The "thank you" ornament is for you!
Be Prepared! Hands Only CPR Training
The Midtown YMCA and the Wilmington Chapter of the American Red Cross are teaming up to offer a "Hands Only CPR" training. If you see someone suddenly collapse, hands-only CPR is the recommended form of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). It not only increases the likelihood of surviving breathing and cardiac emergencies that occur outside of medical settings, but it's simple to learn and easy to remember.

Join us at this special 1 hour event so you can feel confident and prepared in the event of a medical incident. PLEASE NOTE-this is not a CPR certification class, it is a Hands Only CPR Training.

Volunteer Spotlight
Sofi and her human Jeanne Login
Introducing Sofi an English Cream Retriever. She is 3 years old and part of the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. Her human, Jeanne Login is an avid pickleball player here and brings Sofi to the Midtown YMCA to read with the afterschool kiddos!

What is your job at the Y?  
Sofi's job at the Midtown YMCA is to bring smiles to the faces of everyone she encounters! She specifically works with small groups of kids who take turns reading to her.

How long have you worked at the Y?
Sofi just started volunteering with the YMCA. Sofi's human Jeanne Login has been a past Therapy Dog handler and has volunteered at hospitals, camps and with special needs individuals.

What is your Y story?
Jeanne was playing pickleball at the YMCA and saw the afterschool kids here one day. She jumped in and offered to bring Sofi here for the kids to read to.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
When Sofi isn't volunteering, she can be found at home with Jeanne, enjoying walks and going to Doggie Daycare.

We are so thankful for volunteers like Jeanne and Sofi. It's fun to see the kids get off the bus and greet Sofi and then sit in a circle and take turns reading to her!
