The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA has strengthened the Tampa Bay community for more than 131 years, during which we have made it through many challenging times together. Historically, the Y has played important roles in helping our community endure during times of uncertainty.
2020 is a year that none of us will soon forget, mainly due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
In difficult times, the Y quickly mobilized to find innovative and collaborative ways to use our resources to offer solutions to social voids and help our neighbors.
From providing youth relief care for essential workers, to tripling our food distribution to feed even more families, to re-opening under new safety protocols for families – the Tampa YMCA spent much of 2020 pivoting to meet critical needs in the community.
While our community navigated through the COVID-19 pandemic, the Y’s cause to strengthen the foundations of the community remained as strong as ever. As a top-rated 4-star charity, the Y continued to nurture the potential of children and teens, promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility.
This annual report captures how the Tampa YMCA strengthened our community in 2020 with a commitment to three areas of focus:
