A Thank You to Our Anonymous Donor

This morning at the Lynch/van Otterloo Y, an anonymous donor changed this year’s holidays for a lot of people in our community.

This morning at the Lynch/van Otterloo Y, an anonymous donor changed this year’s holidays for a lot of people in our community.

Upon seeing the Giving Tree in our lobby still full of gift cards for families in need of a little extra help, and expressing his concern as to what would happen if they were not purchased before the holidays, he asked if he could purchase all of them.

Totaling over $500, the gift cards on the tree will help many families in our community to have a happier holiday, and to provide basic necessities for their children. Thank you to the man who purchased over $500 in holiday presents for those in need in our community. He wished to remain nameless, but we will not let him go thankless. Thank you for changing the lives of those around you, in such a quiet and generous way.

We want to say thank you to all of our donors who have helped to make the holidays better and brighter for families in our Y and our community. You are all wonderful, and your gifts change the world.

Have a wonderful holiday season.
