Please consider making a donation to the Plaistow Community YMCA as part of our annual campaign. As the board of this incredible organization, we have seen first hand the impact the Y staff, facilities and programs have on our community.
There is a demonstrated community need for high quality, affordable early education and after-school child care. To address this local need, our Y has mobilized and increased our capacity to serve more kids and their families.
In the last year, we have expanded our license at the Pollard Before and After School program to 45 students to meet the growing need for quality, affordable care. We have expanded Early Learning enrichments such as Ninja classes for every preschool student, so that children can enjoy both a strong academic curriculum and physical activity. Lastly, we completed our second year of Summer Readers Camp, which this year was offered throughout the district for students who needed summer literacy support. Instead of sliding back, students made significant gains in their reading skills, enjoyed meals and afternoons at Camp Tricklin’ Falls, all for no cost.
We are asking the community to support our promise to strengthen the community. Where there is a Y, there is an Us.
