Y- Story - Meet Sam

While the pandemic was hard on everyone, it was especially hard on our special needs families. “One of Sam’s biggest struggles is socializing and losing the opportunity to engage with people in real life was a huge fear,” shared Peggy Bianco, Sam’s mom. “All the work that he’s put in, we didn’t want to see that regress.”

During the pandemic, Tom March, NSYMCA Aquatics Liasion, created a unique way to engage Sam by sending a picture everyday and Sam wrote a story about the picture. Tom collected them and created a “book” so Sam published his first book and after the summer he had 4 books!

When you support the NSYMCA, you make stories like Sam’s possible, not only in our Special Services department but in other departments that rely on community support. Your support also ensures financial assistance is available to those in need and that they Y will be here, serving our community for generations to come. This story is just one of the hundreds of stories made possible through your support every day.
