Giving back and providing support to our neighbors



Do you love giving back to your community?

At the Y, there are so many ways you can help us make a positive impact on our community. Volunteer your time at one of our many charitable community events or make a donation that will give a family in need the opportunity to benefit from membership and childcare services provided by our YMCA. Either way, your help and generosity will allow us to provide invaluable services to our community.

Annual Campaign


2019 Strong Kids Campaign

Did you know that the Y is committed to making services available to all, regardless of their ability to pay?  The YMCA of Middletown has a history of over 130 years of helping those  who are most in need.  We are able to keep this commitment through the generosity of our members, local businesses and community donors who support our Strong Kids Campaign.

Strong Kids scholarship assistance allows us to dramatically change the lives of those who may not be able to pay for YMCA services. By contributing to our Strong Kids Campaign you will change the life of someone right here in your local community.

  • A child attends a quality after school program while their single parent works.
  • A senior citizen takes water exercise classes remaining active and healthy thereby remaining independent and living in their own home.
  • A child experiences a memorable summer day camp after losing a parent earlier that year.
  • A teen participates in the Y’s Youth and Government program and develops the courage to stand up in front of 450 peers to debate the merits of their proposed bill.

The YMCA does not receive ongoing governmental support, nor does it receive United Way funding, so we count on your support to our Strong Kids Campaign. Every year the YMCA provides over $200,000 of scholarship assistance in our local communities, thanks to the Strong Kids Campaign.

The overall goal for our 2019 Strong Kids Campaign is $155,000.
Please help us reach our goal.

Community Events


Throughout the year the Y hosts events that help strengthen our community, whether its a Family Night giving family members a place to bond or one of our annual races that promotes a healthy lifestyle, all of our events help us give back to the community. Proceeds from many of our events are contributed to our Annual Strong Kids Campaign which in turn helps the Y provide financial assistance for our programs and services while other events simply bring people together.

Ruthie spent her entire life in the Middletown area and was an active part of the community.

She worked with the Middletown School District, as well as here, at the YMCA of Middletown. She was truly an integral part of our association. Her classes were well received and her benevolent nature always had her involved in an array of “Y” activities.

An avid runner, Ruthie was symbolic of our mission. Her dedication to building healthy Spirit, Mind and Body was exemplified in all she did.

Ruhtie Run Ruthie conveyed this enthusiasm for life, to all who knew her.
Because of this, it seemed a proper tribute to rededicate our road race to Ruthie’s memory. This event raises money each year for the children of our community. The funds raised benefit the Middletown School District Ruthie Dino-Marshall Memorial Fund and the YMCA of Middletown summer camp scholarship fund.
