As a youngster, the Maplewood Family YMCA in Rochester, New York became something of a second home for Robert V. Glaser. The YMCA taught him a great deal of important values he would later use in his adult life, including the importance of being part of a team and giving back. Glaser would use these values to eventually spearhead the creation of The Mary Louise Bates Scholarship Program, honoring his mother. The program provides monetary help to youth that has dreams of attending the highly regarded YMCA.
Maplewood Family YMCA has been a community staple since the early 1900s and to this day it continues to foster a child’s potential, while also focusing on opportunities to give back, and reinforcing the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Today, thousands of children are in childcare programs, and a countless number of them have participated in overnight and day camps during the summer season.
