Macy's YMCA Fundraising Campaign
The ASYMCA is extremely grateful Macy’s selected the YMCA as an organization to support. Our organization appreciates the shoppers who donated. We’d also like to give a Salute to our branches for their hard work promoting the Macy’s fundraising campaign. Our ASYMCA of Honolulu staff is pictured below, enjoying their time promoting the campaign at their local store.
The $900,000 raised will go towards funding scholarships for children to attend YMCA summer camps across the country. Many of our branches offer summer camps. Branches at Fort Bragg, Honolulu, Killeen, Fort Leonard Wood, and Camp Pendleton are just a few who offer excellent summer camps.
Thanks to the Macy’s fundraising campaign, ASYMCA Honolulu will be able to support 250 campers of their Camp Hero and Robotics Camp located on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and Marine Corps Base Hawaii on Kaneohe Bay. Camp Hero builds confidence, self-esteem, and independence. Participants engage in outdoor fun, field trips, crafts, and more. Activities honor military children and ease stress related to military life. Kids depart our camp more resilient and confident.
The Armed Services YMCA provides a ton of other great programs and services in addition to our wonderful summer camps, but you’ll have to look for yourself! If you’re interested in learning about Armed Services YMCA summer camps at a location near you, feel free to check out our website.
