The Metro Area Youth Foundation (MAYF) was formed by a group of Omaha area Optimist Club members who wanted to do more for families and children experiencing cancer. In the past two years alone, MAYF has been able to provide over 90 local families a chance to keep the water and power on, rent to stay in their apartment, a mortgage payment to keep their home and a chance to keep life as stable and normal as possible.
