Silverdale Rotarian and Haselwood Family YMCA Executive Director, Harold Shea, was honored to receive a check for $1,490 to underwrite YMCA memberships for local foster children.

The program enriches the lives of more than 198 foster kids annually by giving them access to swim lessons, dance classes, tumbling and mentorship until age 18. Harold told the touching story of a guardian dis-enrolling a little boy from the subsidized YMCA program, as she was in the process of adopting the child and wanted to include him in her paid family membership. Now, that’s paying it forward!
Thanks to the generous support of our Sponsors of the 2017 Silverdale Rotary Duck Race along with the overwhelming support of community members Adopting Ducks, Duck Buck grants like this one are possible.
