"It was helpful for us to join in with other Ys and group purchasing to support each other. We’re all using common products and it seemed to make a lot of common sense to use their volume to work together. There’s a whole lot of services where the Ys could benefit from coming together to drive better deals.”

- Shaun Elliott, President & CEO, Greater Philadelphia YMCA, Pennsylvania
