The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington Acts of Kindness Fund (AKF) was founded by our senior leadership to give back to YMCA of Metropolitan staff in time of tremendous crisis. 100% of all donations via “AKF” is given to employees who need additional support to get them through severe hardships.
Donnie Shaw is the Director of Community Relations for YMCA of Metropolitan Washington. He has served as a YMCA Employee for over thirty years and provided community service to seventeen Y Branches and program centers by providing Bikes For Kids, Thanksgiving Drives and Angel Tree Drives to name a few. Donnie is a long time member of North American YMCA Development Organization (NAYDO) where he led numerous Philanthropy Live Projects.
Recently, Donnie and his family had a house fire that put Donnie in the hospital and left his family temporary homeless until major repairs can be completed over the next six months.
Donnie represents Philanthropy and Community Service in action. You are invited to support Donnie by donating to the AKF to help Donnie and his family during this difficult time.
