ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Area YMCA gets a donation to provide fitness activities for young people who don't have easy access to the Y.
The MCLB Officer's Spouses' Club gave the Y a one thousand dollar community enrichment grant for a "Mobile Gym."
The money will help buy of a trailer and sports equipment they can take to under served neighborhoods in the Albany area and to MCLB Military Housing.
"It's really just a way to reach those kids that don't come to the "YMCA" currently and get out to the neighborhoods that they can't get here. So it's really a "Y" without walls approach to try to just influence as many kids in the community as possible," said J.J. Edge, Director of Development.
The "Y" hopes to raise $10,000 to purchase the trailer and provide staffing.
They hope to launch the program in August.
You can drop off donations at the Albany Area YMCA.
