The Campbell County YMCA is helping the local community by leading community projects through a new member-led program called the YMCA Togetherhood Project.

According to Todd Hensel, Senior Program Director at the Campbell County YMCA, "Togetherhood" is a volunteer program that commits to doing four service projects a year in our local communities

He said the groups' first project will be a cookout at the VA this Sunday on 9/11 as a way to honor veterans.


"The Campbell County YMCA wants to be a leader in our community and this program helps us get more of our members involved with our cause and mission.  There was no better way for us to launch the Togetherhood program than honoring our Veterans on 9/11," said Hensel. "We invite members of the community to stop by the VA this Sunday to thank our Veterans and just spend time interacting with them." 

The  project has really been led by Will McAleenan, a member of the YMCA and Brad Holcomb, staff member. "

The event will go from 4 to 7 p.m.  and will feature a cornhole tournament beginning at 4 with food served around 5 p.m. for the Veterans.

Fort Thomas businesses Midway Cafe and Fort Thomas Antique and Design Center are partnering with the YMCA by sponsoring the food.

"We are excited about the Togetherhood program and look forward to the projects our members choose to lead and the impact they will have on our community," said Hensel.
