LEARN MORE ABOUT 30 DAYS OF THANKS CHALLENGE

WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?

In today’s social media age, we are showered with negative thoughts, opinions, and events on a daily basis. It’s all too easy to get bogged down by bad news and overlook the positive. But, the truth is, we have so much to be thankful for. So, during the month of November, we are using the Kenosha Y’s social media to shine a light on the good things in life and the Y’s positive impact on our community with #30DaysOfThanks.

And we invite you to join us! For the next 30 days, we challenge you to look on the bright side, reflect on what you are thankful for, and share your gratitude on social media. You can make 30 Days of Thanks a spiritual experience or simply an opportunity for self-reflection, evaluation, or meditation. The important thing is that you take a few minutes each day to write down what you are thankful for so you can reflect on it later.

How to participate:

  • Pay attention to the small things that happen throughout the month.
  • Use a calendar to take note of one positive thing each day.
  • Share your stories on social media using the hashtag #30DaysOfThanks.

Gratitude changes everything, so let’s take November as a time for us to grow as individuals and as a community. We look forward to sharing our stories of appreciation!

SERVING COMMUNITY DURING A PANDEMIC

With adjustments and lots of teamwork we were able to safely serve children for essential workers with emergency childcare during the safer at home order.

We are excited to have the summer program running. Allowing us to continue to assist the same families and more of our community. Following all state recommended guidelines 56 school-age and 20 early childhood aged children are having a
fun, educational and safe summer!!

Words of Thanks from a Parent:
“As an essential worker (bank teller), without the YMCA emergency childcare program I would not have been able to continue working. My younger child’s daycare was not accepting new kids, even from the same family. Because of the Y my daughter is having fun and continuing to learn while school was closed. I am beyond grateful for the Kenosha Y program!”
