Thanks to the Siouxland YMCA, 35 Boys Club members had the opportunity to participate in free swimming lessons. The Boys learned skills that may someday save their life including swimming strokes, floating and water safety. The two week coarse was funded through a $3,000 National YMCA USA Grant.
“I think it’s been a great opportunity. The Y, you know we’re here to strengthen community as a local non-profit. We want every child to have the chance to learn grow and thrive. So, being awarded this grant and being able to collaborate with the boy club has been a perfect opportunity for us, and we’re excited and happy to have the opportunity to do that,” said Molly Hewiit, YMCA Director of Development.
