Letter to the Editor

YMCA grateful for community support

Sunday, May 13, 2012

To the Editor:

We want to say thank you to the Clay County families, businesses and civic groups that donated to our YMCA of Clay County Strong Kids Campaign.

We exceeded our 2012 goal by raising $51,610. These funds are being used to assure that youth and families have access to valuable Y programs, such as School Age Child Care, Summer Day Camp and Youth Sports.

Currently, we are taking financial assistance applications for Summer Day Camp.

For families that are working or attending school, we can reduce the cost of attending camp by 50 percent or 75 percent. That means that a child can attend camp for as low as $21 per week.

Your gifts are being used every day to positively impact this community.

Thanks again.

Deb Plummer, CEO,

YMCA of Clay County
