Orange Park, FL - Officials from the Orange Park Medical Center will present a $10,000 check to the YMCA’s annual campaign in support of the Y’s “Healthy Living” programs and initiatives.
The Y relies on the generosity of the community to ensure that every individual regardless of age, income or background, has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. The major gift from OPMC is designated to the Y’s work in providing opportunities for the young and young at heart to receive support, guidance and much-needed resources to achieve better health and well-being in spirit, mind and body.
This gift also comes with an announcement of a community lecture series that will be hosted at local Ys in Clay County featuring speakers from Orange Park Medical Center. The series will include nine lectures within the year to address a variety of health-related topics.
“At Orange Park Medical Center, we believe that good health and a healthy community go hand in hand. That’s why we support and partner with organizations like the YMCA, which work to improve the well-being and quality of life for the residents of the communities we serve.
