Liberty Mutual “Serves With Liberty” at the YMCA

Volunteer

75 volunteers from Liberty Mutual recently worked in two shifts throughout the day to provide an “Extreme Makeover: YMCA Edition” as a part of their week long “Serve with Liberty” volunteer opportunities. The team tackled building garden beds, weeding and beautifying existing garden and yard areas, painting inside, various other clean up projects and last but certainly not least, painting the entire exterior of the Northeastern Branch of certified United Way partner YMCA of Superior California.

The YMCA of Superior California strengthens the  foundations of community; focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The local YMCA serves all ages with program scholarships provided to families in need. The YMCA is also a funded partner for the United Way Fit Kids program, working to decrease childhood obesity by preventing weight gain for children at risk of obesity and promoting weight loss for children who are already obese. Youth and their parents will learn about the importance of healthy nutrition and physical activity, as well as how to include them in their daily lives.

Many thanks to the hard working and fun team of volunteers from Liberty Mutual for lending your time, muscle and talent to help make such a huge difference in one day. Thank you to Liberty Mutual for partnering with United Way to provide an opportunity for volunteers to give back. Finally, thank you to the staff and administration of YMCA of Superior California for being such gracious hosts to the volunteers and preparing for the day by getting all necessary materials.
