Tyrone Area YMCA announces annual fund drive

Linda Hershey, president of the Tyrone Area YMCA board of directors, announced this year’s annual fund drive will kick-off March 17.
The one-month campaign has a goal of $36,000.
Hershey said, “This is an ambitious goal, but one that is necessary as we continue to provide a broad range of programs to the area. The Tyrone YMCA is proud to be celebrating 90 years of building strong communities in Tyrone and surrounding areas.”
Hershey also commented that the YMCA has been dedicated to the Tyrone community since 1914 to building spirit, mind and body of persons through values-based programs and services focusing on education, health and recreation.
“In 2004, just as in 1914, the YMCA continues to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of young people and their families. In programs like pre-school, youth sports, camping, active older adults and aquatics, we have a team of dedicated staff and volunteers making a difference every day,” said Hershey.
Potential donors to the fund drive will be contacted by members of the YMCA board and by campaign volunteers.
