The Child Care Services Branch of the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy will be hosting its 9th annual Tot Trot & Youth Fun Run on Sunday, October 1st at Metuchen High School.
This event helps us support families from our communities with scholarship assistance in situations when they are unable to pay the full cost of child care. The fund also provides aid to families in crisis and allows us to temporarily provide tuition assistance in the event of a family emergency. In 2016, we were able to support our community with $98,000 in scholarship assistance for families unable to afford the full cost of our service.
We expect over 250 families to attend the Tot Trot and Youth Fun Run, making this the largest fundraising event for our branch this year! Kindly consider supporting the run while helping us fulfill our mission of providing quality programming for all children and families in our communities. At the YMCA, we believe that no one should be turned away from our programs and services based on their inability to pay. Together we can continue to help those in need.
