An Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA Tradition
At the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA, fundraising and service efforts offer our members an opportunity to be a part of something larger than themselves’ and make a meaningful impact in people’s lives. On December 7th, we presented a check for $3,000 to Tillie Burgin at Mission Arlington.
Each year, as part of the Y’s annual November membership promotion we encouraged people to donate $20 worth of canned or dry goods. When they did this, their Y membership joining fee was waived. New members who did not bring a food donation were asked to donate $20 to our Annual Support Campaign, which in turn went back to Mission Arlington. This resulted in a check for $3,000.
Mission Arlington has served the community for more than 3 decades. Our partnership with Mission Arlington offers the perfect opportunity for our members to help serve their community and continue to keep our commitment of social responsibility.
