I was working my usual duties at the Welcome Desk, when I noticed that a member was quietly cancelling and then re-activating a single membership every month. The member was the aunt of two children, who were taking turns because she couldn’t afford to pay for both at the same time. Once I realized their financial situation, we were able to provide memberships for both children through our subsidized membership program. The children and their aunt were ecstatic to find out the great news, and to know that the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign was there for them.
