The Chester Family YMCA is taking local children back-to-school shopping for the annual YMCA Bright Beginnings. This year, the Chester Y hopes to give nearly 100 children the tools they need to have a successful school year, including two new outfits, shoes and school supplies. Since 1992, YMCA Bright Beginnings has served thousands of children by matching them with a “shopping buddy” and letting them choose clothes at a local retailer. The purpose of the program is to outfit children with confidence and the tools they need to start the school year with success.
Back-to-school shopping will take place at Target in Chester on Tuesday, August 20, 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
