YMCA gives free swimsuits

1 min read

More than 100 children receiving YMCA financial assistance and program scholarships will be given a free swimsuit and matching swim cap thanks to a generous donation from an organization wishing to remain anonymous.
More than 100 swimsuits and caps, in multiple sizes and super-trendy colors were shipped to the YMCA with directions on how to distribute the items.  Valuing nearly $1,700, this donation is designed to encourage swimming among Beaufort and Port Royal youth by providing quality swimsuits and trunks for those children most in need.
Wardle Family YMCA provides free swim lessons to Port Royal Elementary children throughout the school year and provided free swim lessons to more than 200 children this past summer. Moreover, the Y offers monthly youth swim lessons priced at $40 for Y members and $60 for community participants.
The YMCA is a charitable organization open to people of all abilities, ages, beliefs, cultures, faiths and incomes. Financial assistance is available based on need. For more information, visit www.ymcabeaufortcounty.com or call 843-522-9622. The YMCA is located at 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal.
