The Emergency Food Network (EFN) and the Lakewood YMCA each received $1,250 from Lakewood Rotary on May 19. On hand to accept the checks were Dave Ottey from EFN and Kathy Lindsey from the Lakewood Y.
Mr. Ottey thanked the club, and reported the money would go toward expanding their underfunded infants program. Specifically, the funds will go to food and diapers.
Ms. Lindsey noted the funds would be placed in the Partners for Youth program. With help from the Partners for Youth program the Lakewood Y has never had to turn away a prospective member for lack of funds. Scholarships of 25-75 percent are common.
