Going the Extra Mile


At Yazoo Mills, we are commtted to being involved in our community’s events and have been for several years now.  Our company donates to many great causes year-round because our support helps strengthen the community in which our employees live.

In 2008, the Hanover YMCA started their LIVESTRONG program which has helped thousands of cancer survivors achieve their potential and lead healthier lives.  This is a free, 12-week program for cancer survivors that meets two times a week for 90 minute sessions.  The program helps survivors move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body.

On October 4, 2015, the YMCA of Hanover, PA hosted the “Go the Extra Mile” half marathon to benefit their LIVESTRONG program.  Over 230 runners laced up their sneakers, stretched, and lined up at the starting line to participate in a cause that impacts the lives of cancer survivors and their families.  Yazoo donated $500 to the event which helped contribute to the overall raised proceeds of $13,000.
