Neighbors in Action: YMCA of Lansing

Wednesday on Current State means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make Greater Lansing a better place. Today, we hear about an organization you’re probably familiar with: the YMCA. What you might not know is the organization offers a lot more than swimming lessons, including programs for adult refugees and physical education programs in Lansing public schools.Current State talks about these programs with Executive Director of the Oak Park branch Kelly King and Ray Neatfield, who manages Summer Place townhouses, where many of the refugee families live and volunteers with different refugee organizations in Lansing.

Current State is looking for more nominations for our “Neighbors In Action” feature. Please help us out and e-mail us your suggestions to currentstate@wkar.org. Put ‘Neighbors in Action’ in the subject line. Or tweet us: @KARCurrentState and tell us a little about why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
