Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area Awarded Grant Through Stewart's Holiday Match

Glens Falls YMCA awarded Stewart's Holiday Match Grant

March 29, 2018

The Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area was recently awarded a generous grant of $8,000 for their 2017 Annual Campaign from the Stewart’s Holiday Match Program. Since 1986, Stewart’s has been collecting and matching donations in their shops from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day.  The Holiday Match funds will be used to award scholarships to children to attend the Y Afterschool Club and to support the Y-Achievers program. 

The Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area serves more than 160 youth annually with afterschool child care at eight sites in five school districts.  These programs help young people cultivate the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement.  Y-Achievers is a free program supporting talented but underachieving at-risk youth with homework help, youth development, wellness and mentoring by area leaders.

The Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area would like to thank Stewart’s Holiday Match program as well as the numerous community members who donated to this fund in their local Stewart’s shops.
