The Home of the Brave

"There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism." - Alexander Hamilton

We owe so much to the soldiers that have fought for our freedom. This month we are offering an opportunity for the community to give back to local veterans in St. Clair County. The YMCA of the Blue Water Area will be collecting items for local veterans through August 31st. We are accepting toiletries, non-perishable provisions, and tabletop games in the collection boxes located at the Welcome Center and the Duffy Wellness Center. Monetary gifts are also being accepted and can be made out to the St. Clair County Department of Veterans Affairs. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
