At the recent kick off of the YMCA’s annual Partners Campaign, the Fort Bend YMCA leadership announced that a pacesetting gift was again pledged by Bo and Amy Huggins. Earlier that month, Bo Huggins, President/CEO of Houston Distributing, announced that his family would be pledging $50,000 to the campaign for the support of the Y’s outreach programming. The gift marks the tenth year in a row that the Huggins family has made a pacesetting gift to the YMCA’s campaign. Over the last ten years, the Huggins family has donated over a quarter of a million dollars to the Y’s annual campaign.
The YMCA Partners Campaign, which officially kicked off January 31 with a goal of raising $350,000, is an effort by the volunteers, supporters and staff of the YMCA to make sure that the non-profit mission of the YMCA is achieved.
The mission or goal of the YMCA is to strive to provide all of its programs, services and memberships to everyone in the community regardless of their ability to afford it. During the campaign, which runs until March 31st, dozens of Y volunteers will be soliciting financial support and telling the story of the Y’s efforts to provide their programming for all.
