Re: “The end of the YMCA in Little Rock

Without knowing specifics, it is hard to say why the Y is closing. I did go to the national YMCA website and looked at the Federal Tax Returns. I found that the Little Rock Y only received $12,500 in grant money for "program support". The Hot Springs branch, however, has received over $140,000 in grants for the same stated purpose in the same amount of time. (If I read the report correctly.) Seems to me, perhaps, a change in the business model may be appropriate. Also, if you look at other YMCA closings, there have been some negotiations that allowed for fundraising in an effort to save the branch. This is so sudden and so final, what can the community do in such a short amount of time?
