The Newton YMCA is focused on making a positive impact in the community through a variety of programs, activities and community outreach. As a leading, cause-driven non-profit in Jasper County, the YMCA partners with many organizations, businesses and individuals to make fun, family-friendly activities are available to all. The YMCA staff works countless volunteer hours on a number of service organizations, at their churches, committees and simply trying to improve Jasper County.
Among community programming we offer are after-school programs for elementary and middle school students, free movies at Capitol II, offering free or discounted rental for community events, free use of facilities for training of emergency personnel in Jasper County, serving as a drop-off and pick-up location for Newton Community School District, partnering with Newton Little League, Newton High School athletics department and much more.
The Newton YMCA hosted a pick-up food pantry during the summer of 2020 to support families that had been affected by Covid-19. All members and staff were encouraged to participate. With the support of the community, we were able to serve over 80 families every week.
