Our Campus Y Story
When the earthquake hit in Haiti I knew I needed to do something, but how could I help so far away in St. Charles, MO? I did not know how but I knew where to go to do something. I went straight to the Campus YMCA. Everyone there felt just like me and wanted to make a difference. We realized we could have a BIG impact by doing something as small as collecting peanut butter and sending it to an orphanage in Haiti. We could help so many hungry children. We collected 483 jars of peanut butter! The next time I need to make a difference and help those in need I know exactly where I am going…the Lindenwood University Campus YMCA!
