Heroes of Houston - Joy McCormack
When Hurricane Harvey hit, Joy took it upon herself to orchestrate a massive relief effort. Even when she couldn't physically reach the YMCA, she was working around the clock to collect much-needed relief supplies. That is why we are pleased to share that today Joy is being recognized among other Heroes of Houston. See her story below.
"Hurricane Harvey affected the lives of millions of people in the Houston area. While the aftermath of the flooding is still being dealt with, it’s the strength of the people who came together to help one another that will be remembered most. We’re celebrating the ordinary people that did extraordinary things to help. We like to think of them as the "Heroes of Houston.'"
Each day the YMCA works with our neighbors to ensure everyone in our community has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Thanks to generous donors, we are able to fulfill this mission through low cost programs and direct financial assistance for families in need. One hundred percent of all dollars donated are invested into programs serving children and families in our community.
