Beaufort YMCA Kicks Off Annual Fundraiser

It's a great place for the kids to play, and anyone to shape up or just have fun. But the YMCA needs help to keep going. Beaufort's Y is kicking off its annual campaign today. They're trying to raise $115,000 to help provide memberships for needy families, free swimming lessons for the kids and funds to keep the Y's after school programs going.

"If it weren't for the aftercare program, I wouldn't be able to go to school," said Elizabeth Humphrey of Beaufort. "My husband works full time. Because of our disabilities in our family we have some real limitations about what we can do financially and physically. The only way i can go to school is with the after care program."

If you'd like to help, just call the Y in Beaufort, or stop in to see them.
