Membership Information



Angie L. Reese-HawkinsAre you ready to build more than muscle? There are more than 135,000 children living below the poverty line across the Metropolitan Washington area. Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure their children are engaged in productive activities, but thousands of families can’t afford summer camps.

When you join the Y this month, you’ll have the opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to help “Send a Kid to Camp” this summer. Your support will help to make your community stronger. Can we count you among the many Y members that are caring for our community?
