Free membership story

Many of you have likely heard about the Ukrainian family who moved to Redding after fleeing the war in Ukraine. 

Thanks to donations to our Financial Assistance Program, the Herasymchuk family is receiving a free membership to the Y and free swim lessons for the entire family.

The family has 3 kids, and they live on a property with a pool, but they are not good swimmers.  After one week, the 8-year-old boy's goal is to join the Y's swim team! 

The Herasymchuk's family became Y members in May, and they come every day, and swim for up to four hours each day. 

The mom, Rusiana, says the Y is best thing that could have happened to them. That is thanks to our donors!

The Y makes life better thanks to you!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our gift-card drive supporting the Herasymchuk family.
