I heard someone the other day say, “home is becoming more difficult to define.” We are becoming a more transient society where we do not even get the opportunity to know our neighbors. Sociologists are describing the world as a colder and darker society. Maybe this is why the holidays have become the most difficult time of year for many individuals. The anticipation of the holidays then lead to the cold and days of winter; challenging those to preserve through the days ahead. How do you encourage the lonely? Those who have let anxiety, fear and depression set in and who see no light at the end of the tunnel?
You voted us "Best Weight Loss Center" AND "Best Fitness Center" because the Y knows the challenges each of you face. You know that where society falls short, the Y steps in. The YMCA makes a difference in the lives of thousands of people in our community and a huge impact on each individual we serve.
Thanks to collaborative efforts between the Patrick Rudd Project, the Travis Manion Foundation and 9/11 Heroes Run–Madisonville, as well as generous community donors, PRP is awarding Everyday Heroes mini grants to 16 Hopkins County First Responder departments and Law Enforcement agencies totaling $24,500.
Deployment can be a stressful and uncertain time for our nation's servicemen and women and their families. In partnership with the Armed Services YMCA and the Department of Defense, the Y is proud to offer memberships to eligible military families and personnel to give them extra support during this difficult period. It's our way of giving back to those who dedicate themselves to serving our country.
