The Mills County YMCA has kicked off its 2014 Strong Communities Campaign with a goal of raising $55,000.
“Last year, we raised about that much,” Mills County YMCA Executive Director Diana Burchett said. “The money provides scholarships for memberships and program fees. Most of it last year was going to families for memberships.”
Specifically, Burchett said, the 2013 campaign provided about 1,200 membership and program scholarships for families and individuals in need of financial assistance.
