The initiative focuses on the healthy bodies, healthy minds of children. Jim Berson, the chair of the South County Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds initiative and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Providence, served as the emcee at the news conference. Read the full story here!


Christy Clausen, senior director at Providence Youth Services, represented the YMCA of Greater Providence at a Y USA conference in early November 2015. Over 144 YMCAs in the country receive the Walmart year-round food service grant. Only 15 grantees were chosen as "the best of the best" to attend a harvest session and share their work -- the YMCA of Greater Providence is one the 15! The photo below highlights the "best of the best" on day one of the conference! (Clausen is bottom row, second from left, in white sweater.)
