Every child deserves to feel confident on the first day of school. Many kids in our community don’t have the proper clothes or school supplies – but you can help. YMCA Bright Beginnings takes children in need back to school shopping with community volunteers. We provide a gift card for volunteers to shop for clothes with a child one-on-one.
Many of us remember picking out a brand new backpack, outfit and purchasing supplies to get ready for the first day of school each year. Parents struggling to make ends meet cannot provide that experience, but we can still help children start the school year ready for success and make back to school special. Each year, the Y works with the staff at local Elementary Schools to identify the students who are most in need.
This year the Kernersville Family YMCA is asking for help to support children for our YMCA Bright Beginnings program taking place August 11, 2019. Supporting one child is only $75. We will have a donation box at the Y beginning July 12 for backpacks and school supplies. You may make a monetary donation to the program at the Member Services Desk at the Y or mail a check to the Y in care of Erin Craver. Click here for our volunteer contract.
The YMCA is also looking for individuals to be a hero to a child on Saturday, August 17. You will shop one-on-one at Target or Walmart with a child in need. Contact Joanne Kiser at email@example.com to sign up.
