Strong Communities Week Benefits the
Sherwood Regional Family YMCA Community
The YMCA never turns anyone away for lack of funds. Our Strong Communities Campaign was created to annually raise funds to support those who need help financially with their membership and program fees. The Sherwood Regional Family YMCA also runs a Teen Center that is free to all area teens. The Strong Communities Campaign funds the Teen Center, membership and financial assistance and subsidizes specialty programs such as our Special Needs Activities Program (Y-DNAPS). This year, the Sherwood staff has created a special week filled with fun activities to help this annual campaign.
Strong Communities Week runs from Friday, February 24 to Saturday, March 3. It kicks off Friday night with a Fitness Fest on our Sport Court and ends with a Dine & Dance at Bella Via in Old Town Sherwood a week later. These events are designed with everyone in mind from a Flick n’ Float for families, a Paper airplane toss for kids to the dance for adults. All proceeds go to the Strong Communities Campaign in Sherwood. Silent Auction items will be on display and available to bid on all week with the auction ending at the Dine & Dance on March 3. We have some great auction items donated by businesses throughout the Portland Metro area.
