YMCA Annual Drive


Every day at the Lima Family YMCA we change a life. A child gains self-confidence, a teen builds leadership skills, a family grows stronger together and an older adult stays healthy and active. We believe that everyone – regardless of their financial situation – deserves the chance to be stronger in spirit, mind and body.   View our annual drive video.
