  16. 16. Why Get Involved: Jessica Dobratz: MAYC Before joining LDA,I did not know MAYC existed . Luckily some of my team members were involved with supporting MAYC prior to LDA, and were able to explain to our team how MAYC supports the Milton community and it's youth . MAYC offers kids many unique opportunities, and I am happy to help our LDA team support such a great organization in any way I can. Mike Davis: MAYC is a positive force in the Milton community. By providing opportunities to learn, express themselves creatively, and a meal, MAYC helps fill the gaps in the lives of Milton’s youth. As a member of the community, it is my duty to help those in need, and I want to guarantee the youth of tomorrow have a place to turn when they are in need.” Teresa Riesterer: MAYC is dedicated to improving the lives of students in the Milton Community. It is my hope that Team Colors United can help MAYC secure sustainable donations so MAYC can continue to support our youth for years to come!
