Volunteers spruce up Daystar Center at Dye-Clay YMCA

ORANGE PARK – When the community is full of bad news about teenagers, there is good news.

Twenty teenagers and adults from Hibernia Baptist Church volunteered recently at the Dye-Clay YMCA’s Daystar Center. The center for severely disabled adults got a much-needed exterior maker over. These young people showed they are truly Christ followers by helping their community and serving others.

They pressure washed the 22-year-old building, cleaned up yard debris and landscaped the grounds with plants and mulch.

Local businesses also showed their community pride, by donating labor and materials for the project, including Kenny at Genesis Services, Bill Hagen of Hagen Ace Hardware, Tim Worthy of Gutter Solutions and Bobby Squires of Bobby’s Services.

The Daystar Center is a program developed by Jo and Tony Knott for disabled adults because of their daughter, Rhonda, who born with Cerebral Palsy. The YMCA maintains the program, staff and more than 35 participants at both Daystar sites – one at Dye Clay Y and one at Barco-Newton YMCA.

“Many thanks to all the volunteers and businesses who helped on this project,” Jo Knott said. “The Y and the Daystar families appreciate your time and sacrifice to keep our facility looking so good for years to come.”
