TCU provides $2,500 grant to Parkview YMCA

Posted: Thursday, December 6, 2018

Teachers Credit Union (TCU) has provided a $2,500 grant from its Foundation to benefit the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA. TCU district manager Sandy Seacott joined service center manager Gwen Burns in presenting the funds to Ben Davis, president and CEO for the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA.

The grant was provided in support of the YMCA’s kindergarten readiness program that benefits children ages 2 to 5. Through the program, curriculum is thematically organized to integrate learning across language and literacy, math, science, character building and physical activity. The intention is to ensure that the children are fully prepared to enter kindergarten.

According to the YMCA’s Ben Davis, “The Parkview Huntington YMCA is grateful for TCU’s support of our efforts to build strong kids, strong families and a strong community. Our preschool program seeks to prepare children for kindergarten, so they are ready to thrive from day one, and the generosity of donors like TCU helps to make this possible.”

“TCU is happy to be a part of this program that ensures area youth are fully prepared for kindergarten,” said Burns. “We are pleased to be able to help build our community’s future leaders.”
