Walla Wall receives AOAP Swim Lesson Grant
"I want to send a heartfelt thank you from the YMCA in Walla Walla, WA for the grant award of $500 for our swim lesson program. Through this we have been able to serve 12 children through our lesson program where costs run approximately $45 per person, per session. The families served by this grant have all recently enrolled and participated in our swim lesson program, and have expressed keen interest in keeping their children in the swim lesson program as long as possible.
These program participants include a variety of age groups, and applications were considered on assessment of financial need. Without this grant, these families would not have been able to afford to provide their children the opportunity to learn potentially life-saving water safety and swimming skills".
The next deadline to apply for a swim lesson grant or life jackets is April 1, 2020.
