ROCKFORD (WREX)- The YMCA of the Rock River Valley is getting financial help thanks to a donation from the Retired Men’s Club.

The club donated $16,000 to the YMCA. The money was raised from the Christmas tree sales over the holiday season. Members of the club say it is a great way to give back to the community.

“Being a charitable organization, we don’t always have money for the extra little thing or extra little zest to a party,” said Bif Buchan, VP of Operations for the YMCA Rock River Valley. “These donations go a long way to improve programs that our participants and members are a part of.”

The Retired Men’s Club donates its proceeds from Christmas tree sales each year.
