Last year the Angel Tree at the Jerry Long YMCA was able to help and serve 122 kids from our local schools. That means 122 children were able to enjoy Christmas last year and have things like coats, clothes, backpacks, books and toys. Thank YOU to the wonderful people that were able to help and serve the community. Beginning November 29 select an Angel from the Angel Tree and be sure to sign it out at the Member Services Desk. All gifts need to be returned by December 14 and must be unwrapped. Please attach your angel tag to your gifts. We will be serving our local community schools.
A Better Us Does Not Have to be a “Fantasy”
Do you love the Jerry Long Family YMCA? Do you have friends that do, too? Are you competitive? If so, then we need you on our fantasy team. We are now recruiting team players for our first “Fantasy Sports Structured” Annual Giving Campaign. Volunteers will be “drafted” on teams by YMCA board members and community leaders. We will have head to head games each week with volunteers having the chance to win weekly prizes and recognition.
What does a team member do? You are a storyteller. Here’s what we are asking you to do: Convey the positive impact of the Y’s programs and services in the community. Act as a Y ambassador in interpreting the Y’s goals and programs. Talk to Y members and friends about making charitable gits to the Y.

The YMCA has a long history of bringing parents and children together for life enriching experiences. This history has left a legacy of strengthened relationships and close bonds in many families and communities around the country. The YMCA of Northwest North Carolina has been a part of the Y-Indian Guide/Adventure Guides program for more than 30 years. Adventure Guides currently serves 20 tribes with over 400 participants in Forsyth, Stokes, Davie, Yadkin, and Wilkes Counties. Collectively, these tribes form the Adventure Guides Saura Nation.
The Adventure Guides Program aims to strengthen the bond between fathers and their children through activities that allow them to spend quality time together. Based on strong traditions of the Native American Culture including dignity, patience, e-ndurance, spirituality, concern for the Earth and family values, these programs are tools that will help build memories that will last a lifetime.
Through Adventure Guides, the YMCA provides the following benefits to father and child:
- Foster companionship and understanding and set a foundation for positive, lifelong relationships between father and child
- Build a sense of self-esteem and personal worth
- Expand awareness of body, mind, and spirit
- Provide a framework to meet a mutual need of spending enjoyable, constructive, and quality time together
- Enhance the quality of family time
- Emphasize the vital role parents play in the growth and development of their children
