We are so appreciative of the many members and employees who contributed their time, energy, and money to make this our best fund drive yet. Due to some last minute donations we brought the total raised to over $8,000! Our goal for this first- time-ever event was $6,000 so you folks blew it away. We would like to thank Erin Buck for her effort to rally her groups. What a difference it made. Some of our staff also made contributions. Signe Linville, Erin Buck, Susan Vanabs, Jennifer Armstrong, and Michael Horning, amongst others. Members from the TEAM AQUATIC volleyball team made a great donation. Plus, there are so many other donors who chose to remain anonymous. This money will go toward helping your neighbors participate in our programs and activities.
As one participant told us,”My family has really benefited from the scholarship program. During this stage of life, we would not be able to join without this assistance. My special needs daughter has flourished from her time spent swimming at UVAC and making friends in KidZone. My children are connected with the childcare providers and look forward to playing in a safe space. They feel special being able to swim and play in the pools. I often only get a break from tending to children for the hour that I am working out. It brings me peace of mind and helps me to feel better about myself. I don’t know where I would be without the generosity of the UVAC community providing our family with this membership. I am forever grateful for their kindness and what it has done for my family. I promise to pay it forward as soon as I am able to do so!”
