The Door County YMCA is working to make a difference for community members who would like to utilize the facilities in Sturgeon Bay and Fish Creek but may not be able to afford membership. As of the end of February, the YMCA’s annual campaign had raised over $350,000 towards its goal of $500,000. CEO and President Tom Beerntsen explains the mission behind the annual campaign.
The YMCA will be sponsoring a 17th annual “Dining around the Door” on May 20 at Alpine Resort to raise much needed additional funds. The Door County YMCA financially assists over 1,800 individuals or approximately 15 percent of their membership, according to Beerntsen. You can get more information on how to apply for assistance by contacting the YMCA directly.
