At the heart of the YMCA lies the power to transform both yourself and the world around you. From our exceptional fitness, personal training, sports and aquatics programs, to our extensive preschool and school-age programs, to our fun family and community events, the Y offers an array of options focused on strengthening bodies, minds and communities.
When you are involved with the Y, you help bring about lasting personal and social change. Whether you want to nurture the potential of children, improve your family?s health, or give back to your neighbors, your involvement with the Y will positively impact your community.

The Buehler YMCA is partnering with Palatine School District 15 to provide a Holiday Giving Tree. There are many families within our community that cannot afford gifts this time of the year. If you would like to help, please do the following:
Take an ornament from our Holiday Giving Tree. Each ornament has the following information; male/female and age of children, and is numbered.
Go to the Front Desk with the ornament. Member Service staff will give you the list of what the family has requested or suggested gift items.
Return the gifts wrapped with the ornament and family list to the Buehler YMCA front desk no later than Wednesday, December 12th. If there are multiple members in the family, please mark each gift accordingly (1 of 3, 2 of 3…). Please remember to bring back the ornament and the family list so that we know who to deliver the gifts to. You will then be given an ornament to hang on the tree with your family’s name, thanking you for your support.
Buehler YMCA staff and volunteers will transport gifts to the school district where they will distribute to the families that week.
If you have any questions, please contact our Front Desk at 847-359-2400 or Sabine Fioretto at 847-410-5202.
On behalf of the families you have helped this holiday season and the Buehler YMCA – THANK YOU!!
