On Wednesday, April 14, the Summit Area YMCA celebrated its Strong Kids Campaign finale marking the successful end of the 2010 campaign. The Association exceeded its $494,500 goal by almost $24,000.

Pictured here, Summit YMCA Strong Kids Campaign volunteers, (l) Georgianna Dente and (r) Jill Goldstein who, along with Doris Mallete (not present), were honored for their dedication in raising funds for the Y's financial assistance program, enabling children and families to take part in summer camp, youth sports, childcare and after school programs.

The Summit Area YMCA is one of the area's largest charities. No one is turned away from life-enhancing YMCA programs because of the inability to pay. If you need financial assistance, ask any Y staff member how to apply. If you can help us help others, visit our website www.summitareaymca.org.
