“The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is thrilled to receive this funding from Gore Mutual Foundation and Howard Noble Insurance Brokers,” commented YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka CEO Rob Armstrong in a statement. “Financial commitments of this kind allow the Y to continue to positively impact community health and wellbeing and deliver programs to everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, religion or ability to pay.”
Last year, the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka provided more than $1,000,000 in financial assistance to 15,000 children, youth, adults, and seniors with access to the organization’s programs.
