March 17 Membership Update

March 17, 2020 Update

Dear Y Members:

Thank you for your support of the Y and your patience during the coronavirus outbreak. We hope you and your family are healthy and safe.

YMCA Membership

The Meriden YMCA has served our community for 153 years and the New Britain-Berlin YMCA has served the community for over 137 years. Thank you for supporting the Y and our mission to develop strong children and families of all economic backgrounds. We are a nonprofit organization and your membership and program fees allow the Y to faithfully serve thousands of local families and individuals each year.

We are hopeful that you will be patient during this unprecedented time and continue to support the Y. Our YMCA has helped keep our community healthy and we ask that you please keep your membership active so we can keep our YMCA healthy during these challenges. Your support is more critical than ever as we anticipate a much greater need for financial assistance this year for child care, summer camp and more.

Please consider donating your April membership dues. We will use these funds toward our Annual Support Campaign to help our community members especially those affected during this virus outbreak. Your donation is tax deductible.

Please click on the link below and let us know what you would like us to do with your April membership fees. You can donate your April dues and keep our Y and community healthy or place a temporary hold on your membership.
