The Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads will host a grand opening of its newly remodeled child development center at 1465 Lakeside Road, Virginia Beach, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday.
The open house kicks off a campaign to raise a $25,000 scholarship line for the child development programs. Each year, the organization receives requests for scholarships from military members; the funding line will provide full and subsidized scholarships for preschool, before and afterschool care, and summer camp programs.
The Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads is a 501-C3 nonprofit organization that provides support for military personnel and their families. Unlike a traditional Y, they do not maintain a recreation facility. They provide outreach programs in the community where military members and their families live and work.
Gifts can be made to the scholarship line by visiting the donation page at www.asymcahr.org.
