Tift Regional Medical Center Foundation donates to YMCA
Wednesday, January 13th, 2021
The Tift Regional Medical Center Foundation recently donated $15,000 to the Tiftarea YMCA in Tifton, GA.
These funds will be used to provide nourishment for the Tiftarea YMCA’s after school program. The program begins with a daily devotion, nutrition, time for tutoring/homework and outdoor enrichment activities and games. Speaking engagements from community leaders are encouraged, as it allows the children to learn about different professions in our area. Before COVID-19, this program fed approximately 450-500 children at eight outreach sites throughout the community in the Summer time and two afterschool sites with approximately 50-60 kids per day during the school year.
The funds were made possible from the Foundation’s “Hearts and Diamonds” Gala. This fundraiser is used to assist community projects; as well as lifesaving medical equipment for Emergency Medical Services in Tift Regional’s service area.
