More than 20 volunteers will be attending the kick-off meeting this Thursday, April 19, at Mercy Medical Center. The Campaign ensures that the “Y” remains in the community for those who need it the most and enables all communities in Appanoose County to have access to diverse programs and activities that meet its needs. Those volunteers working the campaign will be out telling real life stories of the hundreds of individuals that had their life changed at the YMCA. More than 125 individuals this year have re-built their lives and health after medical or financial situations, by receiving financial assistance at the YMCA. Be prepared to listen and learn about what the Y is really all about.
