2020 Annual Report - We're Here for Good

For more than 170 years, the YMCA has strengthened communities by connecting people to their potential, purpose and each other. But 2020 was a year unlike any other. We experienced isolation, loss, shutdowns, unemployment, food insecurity, civil unrest and more.

2020 Annual Report



Letter from


Dear Friends,

The impact of a three-month government-mandated

shutdown and ongoing pandemic have been devastating.

Our revenue was reduced by 40% in 2020 and we had

no choice but to lay off 60% of our talented staff team

members to stay afloat. Member visits to the YMCA

were down by 64% and many people placed their YMCA

memberships on hold. Childcare and summer camp

programming dropped by 38%.

Nonetheless, as these once unimaginable challenges

became devastating realities, our YMCA team charged

toward the front lines. We hosted blood drives to address

a nationwide shortage, organized food drives to ensure

no one went hungry, launched virtual group exercise

classes so everyone could remain active, established

virtual coffee hours for seniors, offered online family

activities and more.

Additionally, we reimagined and reinvented almost

every area of our operations to create the healthiest

environment possible. Staff were retrained in the latest

disease prevention protocols, equipment was relocated

throughout our facilities to provide for social distancing,

electro-static sprayers were purchased for thorough

disinfection, needle point bi-polar ionization units (which

neutralize viruses within minutes) were installed and

much more.

James Horn

Board Chair

We’re here for good.

For more than 170 years, the YMCA has strengthened communities by connecting

people to their potential, purpose and each other. But 2020 was a year unlike any

other. We experienced isolation, loss, shutdowns, unemployment, food insecurity,

civil unrest and more.

In spite of the tremendous loss 2020 brought, we also

witnessed the tremendous strength of our community.

With you on our team, we accomplished more than we

ever could have imagined under these circumstances—

and thanks to your support, we continue to ensure that

everyone in our community can grow strong in spirit,

mind and body. Thank You.

We are—and will be—here for good.

With gratitude,

Denise L. Day

With parents working more than ever or not at all, activities canceled, school

taught through electronic devices and playdates a distant memory, the pandemic

has disrupted the lives of our children.

Parents are reporting signs of stress in their kids such as clinginess, irritability, sleep disruption,

fatigue and more. In 2020, emergency room visits for mental health concerns in children ages 5–11

rose 24% (Centers for Disease Control).

While worrisome, experts point out that kids are resilient, especially when parents and caregivers

help them through times of crisis by validating their feelings, ensuring they safely spend time with

peers and staying active.

That’s why when permitted to reopen last June, we were ready to offer childcare and camp with new

health and safety procedures in place at the YMCA. More than 1,000 children attended weekly—

and we had a great summer safely! We also began offering youth sports leagues and swim lessons again.

And in the fall, when many schools went to virtual learning, we quickly transformed parts of our YMCA

facilities into learning centers and have provided students with academic support, enrichment activities

and socialization opportunities ever since.

Additionally, we continue to offer financial assistance to those in our community who have a need. With

unemployment higher than ever, the need is great. But because of your generous donations, we’re able to

ensure that no one is turned away from the Y due to an inability to pay.

Knowing the importance of staying strong in spirit, mind and body, the YMCA

of Greater Brandywine (YGBW) has worked rapidly to develop new ways to ensure

everyone can do this during the pandemic.

Within weeks of the government-ordered shutdown our team quickly began offering virtual group

exercise classes. Because these classes have continued gaining interest and growing in popularity,

we’ve expanded the number and variety of classes offered virtually. Those with an active YGBW

membership can access live and on demand classes at any time. Additionally, we’re offering

outdoor group exercise classes.

The pandemic changed our community in what seems like an instant,

creating overwhelming need. When the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

ordered a shutdown of all businesses, all branches of the YMCA of Greater

Brandywine were forced to close temporarily, but that didn’t mean our work

or mission stopped— far from it. We were just getting started.

We looked carefully at the needs the pandemic was creating in our community and acted.

We partnered with the American Red Cross and immediately began offering blood drives,

safely collecting over 730 donations in our YMCA branches which helped more than

2,190 patients.

We partnered with several local organizations including the Chester County Food Bank,

Kennett Area Community Services, Southern Chester County Opportunity Network, Square

Root Collective and the United Way of Chester County, to organize food drives. Together,

we collected more than 21,000 pounds of food that helped over 500 local families.

We’ve also launched Virtual Connections, a weekly series of 30-minute webinars on topics that help

viewers live an even more fulfilling life. Episodes have included maximizing health benefits, CPR

and First Aid basics, stress management and even how to eat a full meal with just vegetables!

Episodes are available both live and on demand for those with an active YGBW membership

at virtual.ymcagbw.org.

We created online family activities such as April Animal Madness, at-home STEM experiments

and wellness challenges. We partnered with AT&T to deliver internet hotspots to students in

our community without internet access so that they could complete their virtual schoolwork.

We organized virtual coffee hours to prevent seniors from facing isolation, even organizing a

drive-by celebration for a long-time YMCA member who turned 100 during the pandemic!

Last fall, lots of YGBW members jumped back into their regular workout routine with our four-week

“Back In Action at the Y” Challenge. And finally, at the end of 2020, we partnered with more than 150

YMCA Associations across the United States to participate in three wellness challenges in 2021. The first

challenge which began this past February, had more than 1,800 people from the Chester County community

signed up!

Though it was an immensely difficult year, we were challenged to mobilize our mission in new and

unexpected ways. Helping our community through these unprecedented times has been incredible

and we look forward to continuing to help everyone recover.

The Service to Youth Award recognizes individuals and organizations whose dedication and effort have made a significant and

positive difference in the lives of children in our community.

Bill and Janet Lasko

Bill and Janet Lasko are integral to

the YMCA’s commitment of providing

every child with the opportunity to

learn, grow and thrive. Their support

enables children to enjoy opportunities

such as attending sleep-away camp,

ensures youth programs like Believe and

Achieve, Power Scholars and Youth and

Government have needed resources and

makes it possible for the Y to

invest in critical needs such as a

behavioral specialist.

Additionally, the Laskos can often be

found volunteering at YMCA holiday and

camp events—even delivering pizza to

the kids on what has become known as

Pizza Friday. They have taken the time to

get to know the children—it is not a rare

occurrence to find Bill leading the kids in a

camp cheer!

Naturally embodying the YMCA’s mission,

we—as well as our community—are

fortunate for Bill and Janet’s commitment

to helping every child thrive.


The Distinguished Service Award recognizes the effort and achievement of the YMCA’s most special friends and emphasizes the

need for community service by all our citizens. Recipients of this award have set a standard of leadership that others follow.

Daryl Thomas


The Community Partner Award recognizes an organization or group that has demonstrated a commitment to the YMCA’s mission

and values and has partnered with or supported the Y in outreach initiatives that strengthen the foundations of our community.

Advantage Building & Facility Services, LLC

For more than two decades,

Daryl Thomas, Advisor to the

CEO and Senior Vice President

of Strategic Opportunities at

Herr’s Foods, has generously

shared his time, talent and

treasure with the YMCA of

Greater Brandywine (YGBW).

As a member of YGBW’s Board of

Directors, his insight and experience

have been critical to ensuring our

longevity and sustainability, especially

during the pandemic. In addition to

sharing his professional expertise,

Daryl also invests his heart. “I love

the Y mission, the WHOLE mission,

and want to support youth through

mentoring programs and by giving

them a safe, fun place to grow and

thrive,” he says.

Even when Daryl learned that

we were honoring him with our

Distinguished Service Award, he

responded selflessly, “I am honored to

represent the great spirit of service

and dedication typical of so many

YMCA staff and volunteers. I accept

this honor on behalf of all of us.” We

couldn’t be prouder to honor Daryl

with our Distinguished Service Award.

For many years, Advantage Building

& Facility Services, LLC, a successful

and forward-thinking real estate

firm, has embraced the YMCA’s

cause of strengthening all in Chester

County in both words and deeds.

The company has generously

supported YMCA programs such

as LIVESTRONG, which helps those

living with, through and beyond

cancer grow strong.

With a unique understanding of

commercial property management and

maintenance, Trish Faidiga, owner of

Advantage Building & Facility Services, LLC,

is an indispensable advisor who serves on

the YMCA of Greater Brandywine’s Board

of Directors. Trish and members of her

team also often assist in the planning of

many of our fundraising events.

In 2020, as the pandemic caused

temporary closures and financial

uncertainty for the Y, Advantage stepped

up once again, providing unrestricted

operating support to YGBW. “The support

and expertise that Trish and her company

have generously shared is invaluable to the

YMCA and truly enables us to be here for

good,” says Denise Day, YGBW President

and CEO.
