But as we move to 50, 60 and beyond, what constitutes a healthy lifestyle may look just a little different. Here are some suggestions for helping seniors stay happy, fit and active.

Raising money for the Best Summer Ever!

November 27, 2017

Philanthropy Week 2017

Summer break for school-age students is 8 weeks this year in Pinellas County.  For many families finding quality care and supervision for their children is more than challenging, it is a financial burden. YMCA’s all across the country provide a safe, fun and educational summer for thousands of children each year and thanks to donations they are able to provide that experience regardless of their families ability to pay.

Those donations come from individuals and companies all the time and every once in a while they come from someone a little unexpected.  This type of unexpected donation arrived at the Greater Palm Harbor YMCA on Tuesday. 

Happy Thanksgiving
