Dodge City YMCA Named Finalist for Grant


Dodge City, KS(westernkansasnews.com) – Communities across the United States answered the call from State Farm® to submit causes that would make a positive impact in their neighborhoods. The Dodge City Family YMCA was one of just 200 organizations nationwide –and one of only four organizations in Kansas— to be selected as a finalist for State Farm’s $25,000 Neighborhood Assist grant.

 The grant will be awarded to the organizations receiving the highest number of online votes by Aug. 25. The Dodge City Family YMCA is requesting the community’s help by voting for them to receive the grant. From Aug. 16 through Aug. 25, anyone with a valid email address can vote up to 10 times per day at www.neighborhoodassist.com.  The grant recipients will be announced on “Good Neighbor Day,” Sept. 28, via the Neighborhood Assist website.

For convenience, the YMCA has included a direct link to their voting page on their website, ymcaswkansas.org, and on their Facebook event.

 According to YMCA Branch Executive Director Jackie Regan, local State Farm Agent and YMCA board member Rob Sowers was instrumental in making this possible.
