GraVoc Charitable Foundation President, Catherine Gravel, along with members of the newly formed Foundation, met with representatives of the Metro North YMCA, to present them with a $25,000 contribution representing a Comprehensive Annual Sponsorship. Each year the lives of thousands of people change for the better because of YMCA programs and services. When you join the “Y,” you are joining a diverse community of people dedicated to healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility. The “Y” gives back to our community every day.

Kathleen Walsh, YMCA Metro North CEO, was thrilled to be the recipient of the GraVoc Charitable Foundation’s Comprehensive Annual Sponsorship. “Your donation will help the “Y” continue to help those who need it most and further, help our community thrive,” said Kathleen, and she added, the “Y” does not just strengthen bodies, it strengthens our community.

GraVoc has decided to use a portion of its annual profits to form the GraVoc Charitable Foundation, Inc. The Foundation’s purpose is to assist and engage in activities that serve charitable, educational, literary, or scientific purposes, as well as to create strong, well-organized relationships throughout the community.

Catherine Gravel, President of the GraVoc Charitable Foundation stated, “The “Y” is a powerful association of men, women, and children of all ages and social classes joined together by the shared passion of strengthening the community. The “Y” ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow, and thrive, which embodies the mission of the GraVoc Charitable Foundation.”

We are pleased and honored to further support the efforts of the YMCA and are delighted to join them as a Community Partner.
