December 2019 CEO Message

Happy Holidays!

Published 12.20.19
As we celebrate the events of this past year and look forward to all that 2020 will bring, I want to thank you for being a valued member of the West Cook YMCA. In 2019 we proudly continue the mission of providing you and our community with programs and opportunities to build a healthier lifestyle.
I want to invite you to continue your health and wellness journey with us in 2020. Winter programming starts on January 6th and registration is now open. Pick up a copy of the Winter Guide at the front desk or you can view the the electronic version. Every page is filled with scores of opportunities to improve health and well being. And this new year, we have a special offer to help you raise your fitness bar - explore the Personal Training Sales options we have for you!
With the year-end approaching, the West Cook YMCA continues to welcome contributions to its Annual Support Campaign. Because membership fees cover all the administrative costs of the Y, 100 percent of all contributions to the Annual Support Program stay here in the community to provide scholarships for youth, families and seniors who otherwise would not have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a YMCA membership.
On behalf of the West Cook YMCA, I want to wish you good health and good cheer this Holiday Season! 
Phillip Jiménez                                   
President & CEO

Our 47th Annual Christmas Tree Sale IS CLOSED
Due to the wonderful support of our community, our Christmas Tree Sale is sold out and it is closed for the 2019 season. 
This year we raised $50,580 during our Tree Sale, and the proceeds of each purchase go to support our Annual Support Campaign. Ensuring access to the Y through membership and programs to help make our community equitable for all. Together, we're accomplishing even more to help our neighbors be their best selves through better health and wellness. Thank you. You can have confidence that people in this community will benefit for months to come as a result of this support.
