Franklin Rotary Club Supports Hockomock Area YMCA’s Annual Campaign

The Franklin Rotary Club presented a check for $2,500 to the Hockomock Area YMCA on June 5, 2014 to support its annual Reach Out for Youth and Families Campaign. Funds raised during this campaign provides local families with access to the services that the Y provides, such as child care, summer camp and sports programs, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Hockomock Area YMCA’s cause is the community and believes everyone should have access to the Y. With the community’s philanthropic support, more than 15,000 individuals, children, and families are able to enjoy a YMCA experience.  
The Franklin Rotary Club started in 1930 and has begun its 84th year of service to the community. Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.
