A fundraising campaign for $35,000 to complete a rehabilitation project "to help erase the wear and tear of a quarter century of intense use..."
Notes COMMUNITY Y.M.C.A SERVING YOUTH IN '56

$35,000 NEEDED
TO COMPLETE TASK OF REHABILITATION $17,000
FOR ANNUAL OPERATING NEEDS $35,000

On the Y's twenty-fifth anniversary it started a rehabilitation
project to help erase the wear and tear of a quarter century of
intense use by the youth of the communities of North Hudson
and Hoboken. It was estimated that $35,000 would be needed.
A modest sum to spend on an institution of this size after twenty-
five years of operation. To date $18,000 has been collected,
leaving $17,000 still needed to complete the work of rehabilitation.

To this, of course, we have to add our annual operating needs of
$18,000. The Community Y, therefore, needs badly the total sum
of $35,000 to operate its program for 1956 and to complete
essential repairs to its building and equipment.

One of the major tools combating juvenile delinquency in the
communities of

WEEHAWKEN UNION CITY NORTH BERGEN
WEST NEW YORK GUTTENBERG
SECAUCUS HOBOKEN

is the Community Y. M. C. A. working with youth through a
building, equipment and staff especially designed to help youth
grow into responsible citizens physically, mentally and spiritually.
