Armed Services YMCA Preparing For Annual Partner Member Campaign Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ The Armed Services YMCA and 2013 Partner Member Campaign Chairman BG(R) Jim Cerrone are proud to announce the annual campaign has set a goal of $61,900. 

The funds from this campaign allow us to continue providing programs and services to Soldiers and their families.

"In the Lawton-Fort Sill community, we love our Soldiers and we know the hardships incurred when young Soldiers with families deploy and redeploy to combat areas."  Cerrone states, "While these young dads and moms keep our nation safe, the Armed Services YMCA provides support vital to the families."

"The Armed Services YMCA is the leading provider of social and support services for military families", states Bill Vaughan, ASYMCA executive director, "Through the generosity of donors, the ASYMCA Lawton Fort Sill has provided educational, recreational, social, and  inspirational support services to military personnel and their children continuously since 1942".

ABOUT ARMED SERVICES YMCA

The Armed Services YMCA continues to maintain an increase of more than 200 percent during each of the last four fiscal years which clearly demonstrates that need outpaces resources.

The families of our military's junior enlisted personnel carry multiple emotional and financial burdens while their loved ones are deployed overseas. When service members know their families are taken care of at home, they have peace of mind and can focus on their job of defending our country. The Armed Services YMCA plays a vital role in meeting the needs of the young military family.

The Armed Services YMCA Lawton Fort Sill is Oklahoma's leading nonprofit organization supporting junior enlisted personnel and their families. For more information, please call Kate Whitehead at the Armed Services YMCA, 580-355-5520.
