YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge & South Amboy Receives Summer Camp Scholarship Funds from Macy’s
Metuchen, NJ July 17, 2018 – It is with great excitement the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy announces the receipt of camp scholarship funds from Macy’s that will send children to camp this summer. From May 1-22, 2018, Macy’s customers were able to “Make Good Cents” and round up their in-store purchases to the nearest dollar and donate their change to help send local kids to summer camp at the Y. This campaign, which helped to support the cost of summer camp, raised over $2,600 at the Menlo Park Mall and Woodbridge Center Mall stores. Nationwide, the Macy’s campaign raised over $1 million to send 8,615 kids to camp at the Y.
The YMCA of MEWSA is grateful for this opportunity not only to raise funds to send kids to camp, but to also increase awareness of the Y as a charitable organization as well as an opportunity to engage new donors and volunteers. Macy’s recognizes, along with the YMCA, that every child—regardless of age, income or background benefits from summer camp at the YMCA!
