ALL ABOUT THE OWENSBORO FAMILY YMCA
If you live in Owensboro hopefully you've made your way over to the Owensboro Family YMCA to experience all the wonderful things happening. The mission of the Y is very simple but awesome;
Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs and services that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. For nearly 160 years, the Y has listened and responded to needs in communities around the country. In 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have created beneficial opportunities and programs that serve everyone.
AIDING OUR FRIENDS IN THE EAST
While our local YMCA is constantly busy serving the community they are turning some of their focus to our dear neighbors in the east. Many are coming to the aid of different areas but the YMCA is helping with very specific requests and they are depending on all of us to answer the call.
If you would like to help they will be collecting items through August 25th at 900 Kentucky Parkway in Owensboro.
Collection boxes are set up in the lobby of the YMCA. Items needed include; bottled water, cleaning supplies, rubber boots, and hygiene products
There are several different local stores in town that carry many of these items at a discounted rate. Every little bit helps.
