CAMPAIGNING FOR A CAUSE
Andrew’s Story: I really appreciate how the “Y” instills a sense of responsibility for community in the children. A couple of years ago there was a drive to raise money for tuition help for “Y”
families in need. Andy felt the call to action and asked me if he could go around the block
to ask our neighbors for donations. I felt uncomfortable to walk around with him so I said, “no”. Not discouraged, Andy asked his big brother if he could escort him around the block
to ask for money. To my surprise Andy raised more than $100.00 walking door to door to ask for donations. Who could refuse such a cute kid campaigning for a good cause!
