Here For Good
YMCA High Impact Partner
The First Horizon Foundation invests in organizations that do important work every day to make the places they serve better and stronger. The Y is grateful to be one of First Horizon’s partners. Their investment is giving thousands of families in our community access to YMCA afterschool programming where kids are meeting caring adults, receiving nutritious meals and snacks, and participating in learning stations. Meeting the financial needs of the people they serve is just part of First Horizon’s story. Each year, First Horizon volunteers throw a spring break-themed party at Y camp to make the children’s staycation experience extra special.
This is such a great program. I was asked to tutor in math during our last visit and had to brush up on my long division!

Many of the young people we serve are from single-parent families, and it’s so meaningful to have caring adults interact with them...especially by helping and encouraging the kids with their homework.
