United Way of Van Wert County recently granted Van Wert YMCA a check for $3,500.00. The money was given on behalf of the New Initiative Funds which allows organizations that are tax exempt to apply in order to help with a one-time need or project in Van Wert County.
The YMCA will use these funds for their new After School Program which will target students in grades 5-7th to provide a safe, supportive and productive environment to learn. They will implement community service projects, age-appropriate discussions, homework help and mentoring. Questions about the program may be sent by email to VWYafterschool@gmail.com. Registration can be done at the front desk of the Y. The ‘Y’ will need a valid email address to send program materials to parents.
If you are a tax-exempt organization located in Van Wert County and would like to learn more about or even apply for New Initiative funds, please contact the United Way office at 419-238-6689 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
