Last year, local YMCA's helped more four-thousand area kids and teens learn the importance of health and wellness through their youth programs.
This year they hope to help more, but they need your help to make that happen.
This year's YMCA Partners with Youth Campaign is up and running.
Local branches hope to raise $125-thousand, money that will be used to continue their youth programs.
YMCA locations are accepting monetary donations for the campaign.
You can give at any branch and also by calling the Downtown Y at 322-7816.
The last day for the campaign is this Thursday.
