Summary: Swimming lessons for 75 third-graders from Whittier Elementary School

The Treasure Valley Family YMCA (the Y) requests a grant of $6500 from the Boise Southwest Rotary Club to support the Make a Splash program at Whittier Elementary School. Specifically the funding will provide transportation to and from the Y, swimming lessons for approximately 75 3rd graders. Idaho has the second highest per capita rate of drowning in the US. Teaching our youth to swim is critical in reducing drowning casualties. This program targets children of low income families who might not otherwise be able to afford swim lessons.
