The YMCA of Virginia’s Blue Ridge aims to uphold Christian principles through a myriad of programs that foster a healthy spirit, mind and body.

“The YMCA of Virginia’s Blue Ridge acknowledges and embraces that Christian principles are a significant piece of our organizational mission,” the organization said on its website. “When defining what Christian principles mean to us as an organization we chose the ultimate Christian principle, LOVE.”

These principles are put into practice, in part, through the Y’s Annual Giving Campaign, a fundraiser that helps to raise donations for the financial assistance program. The program is funded through donations and gives those who otherwise might not be able to afford it a chance to be a part of the Y’s programs.

Each time Your Local Weather Authority hits the bullseye with the forecast, we will donate to this cause.

Wondering how 3 Degree Guarantee works? Here’s a breakdown:

  • If our forecasted temperature for a given day is within 3 degrees of the actual temperature, we’ll donate $10 to a specific charity
  • If our forecasted temperature is exactly on the dot, we’ll donate $100 to a specific charity
