Our Heroes: The B.R. Ryall YMCA

June 12, 2014

header_logoBridge Communities is fortunate to have great relationships with many outstanding community partners, and the B.R. Ryall YMCA of Northwestern DuPage County is certainly along them. For many years, this YMCA has provided summer camp scholarships to Bridge families, so that their kids can have an enriching day camp experience during the summer, as well as eliminate the parents’ need for childcare.

“This summer, we provided about $6,700 in scholarships in day camp,” says Michelle Daniels, interim CEO and Chief Operating Officer, B.R. Ryall YMCA. “We are dedicated to youth and social responsibility. Bridge is in our own neighborhood, and we think they’re an excellent fit in terms of a community partner.”

In addition to the summer camp scholarships, B.R. Ryall YMCA also provides family memberships to local Bridge clients, and has a few families attending the before and after-school programs during the school year. “We give away over $325,000 in scholarships and community assistance every year, and every dollar stays in DuPage County,” Daniels adds.

Thank you, B.R. Ryall YMCA, for all you do for Bridge families!
