|Subject:||Resolution Recognizing August 7-11, 2017 as YMCA Advocacy Week|
|Very shortly, I will be introducing a resolution to designate the week of August 7 through 11, 2017 as "YMCA Advocacy Week in Pennsylvania.”
As Co-Chair of the House YMCA Caucus and as a strong supporter of the YMCA swimming program, I can personally attest to the outstanding work of the YMCA in my area and across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We all know the degree to which Pennsylvania's 174 local Ys (the most in the nation) are valuable community assets, providing programs and services to all children and families regardless of the ability to pay. Where would many of our communities be today without the YMCA?
This resolution is being introduced to recognize the 4th annual YMCA Advocacy Week sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Alliance of YMCAs. During Advocacy Week, many local Ys host events at their facilities for local, county, state and federal elected officials to visit and learn more about how they are serving their citizens and our constituents.
Please show your support for Pennsylvania's YMCAs by co-sponsoring this resolution. If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introduced as HR412
