It is with much sadness we share the August 21st passing of Jeanne Hood Jeanne, who supported the YMCA youth programs in her husband’s memory for over 35 years. Mrs. Hood established the tradition recognizing a volunteer within the Y's Biddy Basketball Program with the William J. Hood Outstanding Volunteer Award. In addition, Mrs. Hood would make a donation of new basketballs to all first time participants at the conclusion of every season - nearly 3,000 youngsters over those 35 years. As a result of her generosity, commitment and support, Jeanne Hood was recognized with the Y’s Director’s Choice Award in 2019.
