This year thousands of children and adults will come to the Randolph-Asheboro YMCA for friendship, exercise, fun, education, camp, sports and parties. Many others will not be able to afford the cost of the programs and services they need. We want to make sure that everyone who needs a YMCA program has the chance to participate. People who qualify are not turned away because of the inability to pay, but these programs do cost money. The funds raised in our annual “Investing in People” Scholarship Giving Program are used to provide scholarships for children, adults, seniors, single parents, and others with special needs who lack financial resources. Campaign funds fill the gap to pay the cost of providing these programs. For more information on how you can be a hero to those less fortunate, contact our professional or front desk staff. For anyone wishing to make a tax-deductible contribution, contact Patrick O’Hara or Kathryn Simpson.
