Participants will help the YMCA of the Blue Water Area, and Y’s across Michigan, support state
residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. Michigan’s YMCAs have stepped up at this difficult time.
Collectively, Michigan’s YMCAs serve nearly 20,000 meals per day, offer 50 different opportunities for
safe at-home virtual exercise programs each week, and care for 1,100 children of essential workers.

Additionally, your YMCAs are doing such things as gathering children and teens around virtual
campfires for stories and songs, directly reaching out to families by sharing nutrition and fitness tips, and
hosting blood donation drives in partnership with the American Red Cross.

Liz Sawielski, Vice President of Social Responsibility of the YMCA of the Blue Water Area, said, “We
know that when we speak and act as one, we can move individuals, communities, and Michigan
forward. Thank you for helping us support those in need.”
