My Favorite Holiday

​Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday of YMCA of the Suncoast's CEO, Scott Goyer. 
He shared that personal favorite with the staff and volunteers at our Association and added the reason why, "because it brings family together."​

The ​primary focus is on being thankful for all God has provided.
I am thankful for all of you who have given selflessly of your time, treasure and talent to strengthen our community​ through the YMCA. ​

And for those who can't give you thanks personally:

For the child who is closing their achievement gap
For the single mom with two children on the autism spectrum finding her community through a Y summer camp
For the cancer survivor finding camaraderie and health
For the child in foster care and their foster parents who can play together at the Y For the pre-diabetic finding support
For the working parent(s) who have a safe, nurturing environment for their children before and after school
For the child who is now safe around waterFor the older adult who needs support and community
For the teens discovering career options while being mentored
For the health seeker finding a accepting place to learn to be healthier
For the teen who has a place to belong that is value focused
For the volunteer who wants to give back to share a talent or skill
For the families with young children who are cared for while they stay healthy
For the care givers and children of non-English speaking families that are better prepared for school
For the teen learning leadership skills
For the stewardship of contributed support
For the youth playing a sport for the first time
For the families of adults with disabilities finding their community
For the countless other programs and services the YMCA provides
