Over 25,000 meals and snacks were served to Door County children in need this summer thanks to the YMCA. For the sixth straight year, members of the Door County YMCA, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, and churches created a summer foods program which focused on providing nutritious breakfasts, lunches and/or snacks during the three-month summer break. Door County YMCA CEO and President Tom Beerntsen says 11 different sites help serve the community.
Beerntsen says the YMCA remains committed to providing an effective summer foods program in Door County and is working to generate the grants and contributions to sustain the program. Individuals, businesses, and churches interested in supporting the Door County YMCA Summer Foods Program can contact Tom Beerntsen.
