The Community YMCA of Northern Westchester would like to thank the many volunteers who came to the Y as part of the "A Day Of Service" initiative to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The Volunteer Center of the United Way organized this group of volunteers to paint the toddler and preschool classrooms at the YMCA Learning Center in North Salem, NY.
"This event and these wonderful volunteers helped us refresh our Learning Center, this allows us to upgrade our childcare programs and to be able to continue to offer scholarships and assistance to anyone who needs our help.” said Maire Brosnan Katavolos, Community YMCA, Executive Director.
I would also like to thank Larry Coleman, Sr. Safety/Materials Supervisor at AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry in Brewster. He saw our listing on the United Way’s website and donated all the paint we needed. Larry called me and allowed my staff to have fun choosing from one of the beautiful Glidden paint colors. We are so grateful and can’t wait to show off the beautiful redone rooms to the children.
