Danville YMCA Membership Drive a Big Success

      Danville, VA-- A big can food drive in Danville can help you join the YMCA for free and help out God's Storehouse.

      At the beginning of the month, the Danville Y started a membership drive. All those who joined during the month of January and brought in five food items for God's Storehouse, had their $50 membership fee waived.

      They had a goal of 150 new members, and they got 200 new members.

      "It's really neat to know that we surpassed the goal," said Kasey Rising, YMCA membership and marketing director. "For me, the most exciting part is to see all of this food here, and to know that the community was excited to give back."

      Thursday is the last day for the membership drive, and you have until closing time to take advantage of the deal. The YMCA will be delivering all the food to God's Storehouse on Monday.
