We want to extend a sincere Thank You to the United Way of Western Connecticut!
The Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut’s Children’s Center at Grassy Plain in Bethel, received funding from the United Way of Western Connecticut. This funding supports the Y’s Children’s Center’s After School and Early Education programs. Additionally, this grant provides critical financial assistance for students and families in need. The YMCA also received a $20,000 COVID Resiliency Grant that has helped with staffing costs so that we are able to continue necessary safety protocols for drop off/pick up, and cohorting students during the pandemic.
Children in our program participate in STEAM activities, science experiments, practice their vocabulary in our writing center, cultivate robust vegetables in our gardens, learn about animal life in our Butterfly Release, and so much more!
