Every day the YMCA affirms its commitment to making a positive impact in the community. Y programs provide opportunities for all generations, ensuring that every individual feels a sense of belonging. And as a non-profit, community-based organization, the YMCA relies on the generosity of its members and the support of charitable giving to provide services and financial assistance for children, adults and families living in our community.
That is why the YMCA would like to thank the CITGO Lemont Refinery, which recently provided a $10,000 donation in support of the YMCA Mission Strong Fund, helping ensure that nobody is turned away from the Y due to the inability to pay.
“We are so grateful for CITGO and we are humbled by this generous gift to the Y,” said Greater Joliet Area YMCA Chief Executive Officer Katy Leclair. “CITGO is a long-time supporter of YMCA initiatives and we continue to be inspired by their dedication to helping us serve our community,” added Leclair.
