Project Description

The Norfolk Family YMCA has been a leader in youth activities in our community for over 100 years. At the Norfolk Family YMCA, it's not just about youth playing sports. The Y is a place for kids to hang out with their peers.  During Big Give 2017, together we can help the youth in our community by making afterschool fun while helping kids keep moving at the same time.  Many youth in our community utilize our game room afterschool, in the summer and while waiting for parents when they are attending fitness classes or working out upstairs. Although small, our kids game room is heavily used! Parents even spend time in there with their kids!  We currently have 2 nice picnic tables, 2 not so nice couches, 2 foosball tables and a ping pong table in addition to an Air Hockey table that is broken and can not be repaired.  Our first goal is to replace the Air Hockey table and re-place the 2 couches with two durable "Buddy Benches". We also think a nice addition to this space would be an interactive wall game that would keep kids moving while working on power, agility, endurance & eye hand coordination, all while having fun! 

It would truly be a blessing to be able to add all 4 items for the kids enjoyment through the 2017 Big Give. Please consider giving during 2017 Big Give weather it is donating to this project or one of the many worthy projects this year!
