The Door County YMCA will be celebrating My Y Week from February 12-16. My Y Week is the official kick-off of this year’s campaign to raise $500,000 to help keep the promise to serve community members who want to participate in YMCA programs but can’t afford it on their own. Door County YMCA President Tom Beernsten says that this year alone they have already raised over $300,000.
Beernsten adds that there will be different programs throughout the week, including soup day on February 13th. For soup day, local businesses will be donating between 20-30 different kinds of soup, all with the goal of promoting the good that the Door County YMCA does.
