Thank You, Veterans

At the Westport Weston Family YMCA, we are so grateful to have members in our facility that chose to protect our country in the military. Through the help of the YMCA Military Outreach Initiative, we can provide a safe and nurturing environment to promote growth and healthy living among our members who face the hardships of military deployment.

Members like Marisa and her son find comfort at the Y when her husband is on deployment.

“There is not enough time and space to thank the staff at Camp Mahackeno for the incredible summer our son had.” Marisa wrote to our Membership Engagement Director, Brian Marazzi. “The peace of mind offered knowing our son was in a safe and caring environment, when having fun and making friends is priceless.”

Families like Marisa’s, though, are not uncommon in our community. Our continued support for military members has already grown to help nearly one dozen families. It’s one way that we can say, “Thank you for all that you do.”

Our goal is to make sure that everyone has access to our memberships and programs. In this way, we can build a better community and ultimately, a better “us.”

If you are interested in joining the Westport Weston Family YMCA and wondering about our military and veteran discount, please contact Brian at or (203)226-8981 x104.
