Donate a swimsuit, change a life

The YMCA is dedicated to helping all children grow up safe, strong and healthy. That’s why our Urban Swim Initiative offers free water safety lessons in Syracuse city pools plus free safety education for their families.

Why? Because drowning is the second-leading cause of death among children. Our goal is to dramatically cut the number of swim-related deaths in our community. Plus, kids who are confident in the water are better prepared to meet other life challenges.

Your donation will ensure that children are prepared to succeed and have fun. Please drop off a new swimsuit at your YMCA branch. To donate money, call the Y at 474-6851, ext 309
