Young Professionals Send A Deserving Child To Camp This Summer At The YMCA

The United Regional Young Professionals Organization (“YPO”) successfully achieved its goal set earlier this year to send a deserving child to summer camp at the Hockomock Area YMCA. This accomplishment was a group effort of many local professionals who gave donations at YPO events held from April through June.

Tom Dunn, YPO Secretary, commented: “Raising the funds to send a child to camp at the North Attleboro Hockomock Y was a great way to end our year before we take some time off this summer. The Y has an important and special place in our community. As a North Attleboro resident who gets great use out of the Y, especially with my young children, I am very happy I could help the YPO achieve its goal.”

“Our charity drives are gaining greater momentum each time we do one,” explains YPO President, Sean Chrobak. He further commented: “It is rewarding to help our local charities such as Project Smile, Julia Cekala Foundation, and YMCA. There has been a strong interest amongst our attendees to contribute and I am optimistic that it will also lead to future giving outside the YPO’s involvement.”
