The Young Men's Christian Association of Youngstown, a local non-profit organization, was recently presented with a check for $10,000 from the Home Savings Charitable Foundation to help finance the purchase and installation of a new hot water system.
According to Timothy Hilk, CEO, YMCA of Youngstown, the YMCA works side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. "Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good," said Hilk. "Our focus is primarily on: youth development, nurturing the potential of every child and teen; healthy living, improving the nation's health and well-being and social responsibility, giving back and providing support to our neighbors."
"We're proud to be able to support the YMCA of Youngstown in their mission to help make our valley a better place to call home," said Darlene Pavlock, executive director, Home Savings Charitable Foundation.
