The Door County YMCA is launching a new program thanks to a generous national grant. A grant of $23,000 will go to developing a character development program geared towards growing the swim team. Door County was one of 32 programs nationwide selected as part of a larger donation to the YMCA. Door County YMCA CEO and President Tom Beerntsen explains what the new program aims to accomplish.
Beerntsen continued on by stating how proud he is with the growth of the Door County YMCA in order to receive this grant. The YMCA has over 800 locations in the United States. Beerntsen continues to thank those who support the two Door County locations that made receiving this grant possible.
