YMCA receives scholarship grant

PORT ROYAL, SC (WTOC) - The Bargain Box donated a grant to the Wardle Family YMCA.

The grant will be used for the YMCA's Annual Creating Opportunities Scholarship Campaign. YMCA programs include youth sports, aquatics programs, before and after school care, day camps and summer camp.

YMCA's goal is to not turn anyone away due to inability to pay and its scholarship campaign provides financial assistance and program scholarships to those who  cannot afford to pay for YMCA's programs, according to the YMCA.

In 2010, the Y gave over $160,000 in scholarships to families in need. These funds were raised through the generosity of individual donors and grants. Bargain Box's kindness will help make 2011 another successful year for the YMCA.
