“YMCAs are uniquely positioned to bring about meaningful, lasting change to the communities we serve,” said Jeff Kline, first vice-chair of the Akron Area YMCA Board of Trustees. “Ys across the U.S. identify and meet the community’s most pressing needs in the areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Regional YMCA Legislative breakfast provides an opportunity for leaders to hear first-hand the impact of the Y as a charitable organization strengthening the communities we serve.”
