We are proud to continue our support this year of the YMCA Military Welcome Center at Will Rogers Airport with a donation of $10,000. The Welcome Center’s hospitality and care make a difference to our traveling service personnel EVERY day. This center provides comfortable seating, television, Internet access and cell phone usage, snacks and beverages, video games and other means of entertainment at no cost to traveling military personnel and their families. The center also provides YMCA volunteers who are available to help solve problems, share experiences, and offer encouragement. The YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City opened the doors of the YMCA Military Welcome Center on June 4, 2007. Since then, hundreds of thousands of military personnel and their families have had a place to stay and rest during extended layovers at Will Rogers World Airport.
