ASHLAND — The Board of Directors at the Ashland Family YMCA and Molly Riley the CEO would like to thank Armstrong and The Sedwick Charitable Foundation for their $50,000 donation.

“The donation will go directly to offset the cost of a generator,” Riley said. “We will now be able to run this facility when we have a power outage.”

The Sedwick Family Foundation was established by Jud Sedwick, Founder of the Armstrong Group of Companies, as an effort to give back to the communities it serves. The YMCA played an important role in Sedwick’s youth so Armstrong is pleased to be a partner with such a fine organization.

“We are very grateful for this generous donation,” Riley said. “The Ashland Family YMCA has been strengthening our community for 117 years.

“We strive to be an organization that improves the quality of life for all who enter our facility and we do this while focusing on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

“We are also a partner agency with the Ashland County United Way. We are all here to help support and strengthen our community.

The Life section is supported by Brethren Care Village in Ashland.
