The Forest City YMCA has begun their annual fund drive to support a number of programs offered by the YMCA. The fund drive is always held at this time of year and looks for donations from both businesses and individuals to meet it’s goals, according to YMCA director Bruce Meilke.
The donations are accepted in a number of ways during this annual fund drive. The purpose is to make it easy for the donors to give their money to the Forest City YMCA in the easiest way possible. The drive begins through the mail first.
The YMCA is not setting fund raising goals much higher than last year. The hope is to generate enough revenue to fund necessary programs for those who may not be able to participate in the YMCA according to Meilke.
Those wishing to donate can call the Forest City YMCA at (641) 585-5220.
