“Learn-to-Swim” Outreach

   We are approaching that time of year when many children will be learning water safety and swimming skills. Over the past seven years, Canyon View members have generously supported this outreach effort by providing swimsuits for the children in Southeast San Diego.
Beginning in mid-April, the Jackie Robinson YMCA will be transporting the neighborhood children to pools in East San Diego while their new “Y” facilities are under construction.
This year, the Jackie Robinson “Y” is offering the opportunity for all 3rd-5th graders in their community to participate in swimming lessons.  New and gently used swimsuits will be collected beginning on March 4th and continuing through the first week in April. A plastic bin will be in the foyer to collect your donations.
While all size swimming suits are appreciated, the highest need will be for suits in the children/teen sizes of 8-14.  If you would rather donate money, we will gladly shop for you.
Thank you, in advance, for your continuing involvement and generosity. If you have questions for comments, please contact Carol Simonson or Patti Rolla.
