The Wardle Family YMCA of Beaufort County was recently granted $14,400 in donations through 100 Women Who Care Beaufort.

Funds are earmarked for the YMCA Migrant Summer Education Camp as well as the 2017 Scholarship Campaign.

The 100 Women Who Care Beaufort is committed to supporting people in need in the community. 

The members promise to donate $100 per quarter to a worthy cause, charity or nonprofit operating locally and serving the Northern Beaufort County community. 

This is the second year of the YMCA Migrant Summer Education Camp and will have an increased capacity of 115 campers ages 5-18 who are in the area during the summer as their parents work the local agricultural harvest. 

The YMCA camp offers these kids a safe, structured environment with educational components, recreational activities, healthy meals and fun. Campers receive swim lessons, dental/wellness checkups and weekend backpack meals.
