United Way Provides YMCA with Adult Fitness Class Supplies

United Way and YMCA of Mount Vernon have a long history of strong partnership, so when Annette's class grew to include more people than there were supplies for, United Way stepped up and sponsored some additional exercise balls. These balls may look familiar - they are very similar to the ones provided to Knox County's fourth graders when they participate in United Way's Crunch Out Obesity program.


United Way supports the YMCA's Community Wellness program, which includes Community Events, Goal and Progress Tracking, and Financial Assistance, which allows the YMCA to not turn anyone away due to an inability to pay for programs or membership. We also partner in delivering the Youth Enrichment Program, held Tuesday evenings providing kids with STEM lessons while parents workout in the gym facilities.
