Bright Beginnings Program
 


Having the right "stuff" to start school means more success with learning. The YMCA of Gloucester County's Bright Beginnings Program is a community outreach program that provides children in need with the new clothes and school supplies needed to start the school year with confidence and excitement. 
 
The Y organizes a planned shopping day and volunteers to shop one-on-one with a child. The day starts off with a healthy breakfast for the shoppers and their volunteers then after, a fun bus ride of singing and cheering - they head out to find shirts, pants, shoes, socks and coat. At the end of the day, each child receives a backpack filled with school supplies.

SUMMERTIME HEALTH TIPS FROM PATIENT FIRST
 
Extreme heat has arrived and temperatures and humidity will continue to rise. This increases health risks as you work and play outside, especially for older people and young children.
 
Excessive heat can cause several health problems including heat exhaustion. Symptoms include:
  • Profuse sweating
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Skin that feels cool and moist
  • Muscle cramps
 
Move this person to a cooler location, apply cool wet cloths to their body, and give the cool water to drink. If the person vomits or refuses to drink, call 9-1-1. Heat exhaustion can lead to heart stroke.
 
How can you avoid heat related illnesses?
  • Wear light-weight, light colored clothing made of breathable material, like cotton.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink water throughout the day.
  • Avoid strenuous outdoor activity on hot days.
  • If you must be outside, take frequent breaks in a cool place.
  • Air-conditioning at home during extreme heat. Try to spend time in air-conditioned locations such as a shopping mall, public library, or public health sponsored heat-relief shelter in your area.
