St. Patrick’s Day was an exciting day for the children of the Westfield Area Y’s Kindergarten Wraparound program at the Main Y Facility.  The children brought in baked goods and sold them to members to help raise money for the Westfield Area Y’s Strong Kids Campaign.  The children raised a total of $226 and were very proud to make a difference. 

The Westfield Area Y Strong Kids Campaign provides financial assistance to families in need to enable their participation at the Y. Thanks to the Westfield Area Y Strong Kids Campaign, no one who lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside and is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship is turned away for inability to pay.  In 2013, the Y provided $395,000 in direct financial assistance to nearly 350 individuals.  Approximately 85% of the assistance enables children to attend Y child care and summer camp programs. 

If you would like to learn more about the Westfield Area Y’s Kindergarten Wraparound program, please call Carolyn White at (908) 233-2700 x248 or email
