On Thursday, March 8 you can help make an impact in our community. You also can sample a new black bean burger at AJ Bombers, 1241 N. Water St.
Yep, it's a Tweetup and the YMCA of Greater Milwaukee wants you to show up Thursday night to learn about how you can help lend your time and talents to Milwaukee area kids through the Y's mentorship programs.
From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., you can talk to Y staff about its mentoring options, register to win cool Y merchandise, donate (if you'd like) to Y programs and celebrate the launch of a new burger, a healthy YMCA-inspired black bean patty with lettuce, garlic aioli, tomato, swiss cheese, oven roasted zucchini, yellow squash and red peppers. Mmmm.
For more than 30 years the Y has provided crucial mentoring programs, but they only work if you get involved.
"Each of us has the opportunity to make an impact in our community. Many students could use a little support, from a caring adult, helping to create their story and setting the wheels in motion for a brighter future ‚Äď one that includes a solid academic record, a strong character and a pathway to college. Be the inspiration in your community," said Kathy Munson of the Y.
Get to AJ Bombers on Thursday, hang out with cool people and learn how to help make a difference in a young person's life. See you there.
