Cindy S.

Tacoma Center YMCA

After working in the corporate world for 20 years, Cindy decided to shift her focus on her family, so they joined the Y.

"The Y was like our adopted family," said Cindy. "Every coach, instructor, volunteer, and staff member took us under their wing, making sure we all felt supported."

When Cindy learned about the Annual Campaign, she became a supporter. "I donate to the Y because I want my kids and grandkids to see what it looks like to help someone else in need," said Cindy.

Cindy and her husband help raise money for the Y. "My encouragement to anyone who has never donated before is see the programs, the people, the faces that directly benefit from your dollar," said Cindy. "I guarantee you won't regret the sacrifice."
