Round-up holiday purchases to benefit YMCA

Submitted By David Hembree

Through December 14, shoppers at the New Park Mall JCPenny in Newark are invited to round up their holiday purchases to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to the Fremont/Newark YMCA to support quality afterschool programs in their community. The Y has partnered with the local JCPenney to provide children in need with access to life-enriching afterschool programs that foster social skills, provide opportunities to be physically active, and achieve academic success in school.

"The availability of affordable afterschool programs continues to be a vital need for many parents and caregivers in our community," said Catherine Rice, Child Care Program Director for the Y. "Support for JCPenney's 'Round-up' campaign will help us enhance our efforts to impact the lives of as many children as possible after school with meaningful, quality programs."
