NEW BRITAIN - The Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA is hoping to get feedback from area residents through an online survey.

The Y wants to hear about important needs in the communities it serves so it can design and deliver new programs and services, specifically in youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

“We’re encouraging members of the community to take the online survey and provide feedback so we can better understand the needs of our community and design programs and services based on those needs,” said YMCA CEO John Benigni.

Responses will not be individually tracked and will be kept confidential.

Respondents may remain anonymous, but if a respondent provides a name and email address, he or she will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate for $250 worth of Y services, which may be applied to membership, summer camp or youth programs.

Winners will be chosen in New Britain, Berlin and Meriden.

The survey is available in English and Spanish and the YMCA says it should take no more than fiveminutes to complete. Respondents must be at least 18 years old. The survey will be active until 11:50 p.m. on March 23.

Questions about the survey can be directed to the YMCA’s membership and marketing director, Joan Goodman, at 203-235-6386 or by email at joangoodman@meridenymca.org or jgoodman@nbbymca.org.
