Westerly Community Credit Union is the sole sponsor of the Ocean Community YMCA School's Out program

The Westerly Community Credit Union is proud to announce that they will be the sole sponsor of the Ocean Community YMCA’s School’s Out program. The sponsorship of $10,000 will help the Ocean Community YMCA continue to offer before and after school enrichment and childcare for families of elementary school children in the Chariho District: Charlestown, Hope Valley, Richmond schools. It will also now allow them to add the Westerly District: Dunn's Corners, Springbrook, and State Street schools.

These funds will help offset the initial start-up costs that the Y will incur to be able to bring the program to Westerly Public Schools sites. These expenses include staff training, file cabinets, cell phones for all three sites, materials for the program, and supplies related to COVID-19 such as PPE, thermometers, and sneeze guards for certain areas.

“Having before and after school enrichment will help many families during COVID-19,” stated Stephen White, President & CEO of Westerly Community Credit Union. “Childcare for working families is crucial and we are happy to help an organization that shares our goal to strengthen and support our local community.”

“The Ocean Community YMCA is grateful for the generous support the Westerly Community Credit Union is providing for our School’s Out Program,” said Maureen Fitzgerald, President & CEO of Ocean Community YMCA. “This support will enhance our School’s Out program, the children involved will benefit from this wonderful support. The Westerly Community Credit Union continues to support local non-profits, and strengthen our community.”
