Allison Troyer Wiswell
Allison has been participating in YMCA activities for many years. Along with her family, Tom and Norah, they have experienced youth sports, swim lessons, Camp Algonquin, Y Time childcare, and volunteer workdays. Recently, when the YMCA began to provide more outreach services to the county, she saw an opportunity to team up and help our organization distribute more food boxes and direct services. Allison leads Blue Zones Activate Barry County, a well-documented and structured approach to improving health and well-being. Through our partnership, the YMCA and Blue Zones have made a difference by distributing thousands of boxes of food and evaluating mobile food delivery approaches for the future. Allison always has a smile on her face and cheerfully interacts with our staff when we have the pleasure of working together. Thanks again, Allison, for all of your hard work on those cold mornings this winter!
