Member Giving Day

Wednesday, Mar 11 2020 Donate Today!

The South Shore YMCA is a charity. As the region’s leading  nonprofit organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, we work side-by-side with our neighbors every day to strengthen community — ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do our important work, the Y relies on charitable donations to our Annual Campaign from Y members, volunteers, businesses and members of the community.

When you are involved with the Y, you become the better you, helping to bring about lasting positive change for you and your community. Whether you want to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve your health and well-being, or give back and support your neighbors, your involvement with the Y will positively impact those in your community.

Please stop by your local SSYMCA branch during this year’s Member Giving Day to show your support. Together we can continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people across the South Shore through youth development, healthy living and our commitment to social responsibility.

Member Testimonials


“It’s not a gym, its where a community comes together. From the time I walk through the doors, everyone from the staff at the desk to the Activity Center and Field House is fantastic! Before I came here, I was in a bad place for a couple of years, never moving from the couch once I came home from work. Having the Quincy YMCA has given my daughter and I a place where we can bond more as a father and daughter. I will always be grateful that I have had this opportunity that has made a huge change in my life.”


“The Partnership Program at the SSYMCA Quincy and Emilson branches has helped me immensely. Through my 3-years in the program thus far I have continued to gain my strength, mobility and independence. The teams at both locations are dedicated, caring a motivated to help me get better. It’s so important to be social and focused on my health. The Partnership Program has helped me get back on my feet in so many ways. They give me hope and progress each time I come in.”


“I first came to the South Shore Y with a walker and a goal to focus on my recovery. I had a bad accident that damaged my back and the nerves to my leg. The Partnership Team here was able to help me transfer my rehabilitation exercises to the machines and other equipment here at the Y. The Partnership Team is always willing to help out and is determined to help me get to my goal of walking without the concern of falling. I’ve regained much of my mobility and have the team here to thank for taking the time to work with me. They helped me so much that I look forward to returning the favor and begin volunteering in the program as a way to give back to a community that helped me so much.”
