SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Members of the Metropolitan Savannah Rotary Club presented the West Broad Street YMCA with a check for more than $4,000 Wednesday night. The donation will be used to pay for new soccer equipment and gear for the children. The soccer program benefits children by teaching teamwork, commitment, healthy lifestyle and self-confidence. The director of the West Broad Street YMCA says the children will benefit tremendously.
"Well you know one of the mottos of rotary is service above self and this club really does exemplify that. So here they are taking time off of work, they raised money and they brought it in. They are coming in tonight, putting the goals together and brining in the equipment. They are going to spend time with the kids. I mean, who could ask for more? It is absolutely perfect," said Peter Doliber, West Broad Street YMCA executive director.
Members of the Rotary Club also donated their time to the children on Wednesday night.
