During his youth, Robert V. Glaser spent a large portion of his time at the Maplewood Family YMCA in Rochester, New York. His time there instilled in him many important life skills and values, including teamwork and giving back. Decades later, Glaser would establish The Mary Louise Bates Scholarship Program in honor of his mother which provides financial assistance to children that wish to attend this same YMCA that left a lasting impact on Robert.
Maplewood Family YMCA has served its community since 1916 and to this day, it remains committed to its mission of nurturing a child’s potential, creating opportunities to give back, and reinforcing the importance of staying healthy. Thanks to the YMCA’s impact, over 25,000 children are in childcare programs, more than 25,000 youths have participated in overnight and day camps during the summer, and it even boasts over 183,000 local members and program participants.
