MISSOULA, Mont. - Local non-profits have stepped up in numerous ways over the past year to help our communities through a global pandemic. One non-profit we are profiling this week is the Missoula YMCA.
The Missoula Y was one of the first local non-profits to rise to the challenge that coronavirus presented, providing services to the Missoula and Lolo communities.
Montana Right Now’s Ben Wineman has joined the non-profit, donating his time into helping make the Missoula YMCA the best that it can be. Ben grew up in the Seattle area, and attended YMCA summer camps and daycare. Ben’s wife Ashley is a Missoula native, and was part of the Missoula YMCA summer camp staff growing up in the Garden City. So for the Wineman family, this organization means a lot!
