A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Here is just one brief example from a family with two young children. They requested funding for Parker Pals Scholarships for swim lessons for their children.
As a family with two working parents and our children in day care, we don't have much money left for 'extras'. We would like our children to learn how to swim, as it is such a valuable skill to have. Our day care is near a pool that offers lessons, so the kids can get there-we just can't afford the lessons. We would really appreciate a scholarship to help pay for our two children to receive lessons this summer."
