The John C. Mithun Foundation, an organization with a passion for directly helping children and families, provided some $90,000 in scholarships and financial assistance for the Santa Barbara Family YMCA childcare program.
The donation will help to support the programs and operations of the childcare programs for local families.
Many in the Santa Barbara community, especially first-responders, are working hard throughout the pandemic. The partnership with the YMCA and the John C. Mithun Foundation will provide assistance to numerous community families. The donations will help to continue much-needed support for those hardest hit in the past year.
“The need for childcare in the community has become more evident especially as the post-holiday surge begins,” said Craig Prentice, executive director of the Santa Barbara YMCA.
