YMCA partners with 1847Financial to benefit special needs community

YMCA of Bucks County has received a $20,000 donation from 1847Financial, a Penn Mutual Partner, to support the Y’s Ability special needs programs in 2019.

The Y offers an after-school program called Club After 2, for students with special needs through age 21. For participants age 21+, the Y’s Seekers program provides socialization and activities year-round, two evenings a week. The Y also offers Ability Summer Camp at select camp locations. In 2019, YMCA of Bucks County anticipates serving 360 individuals with special needs between the ages 3 and 76.

“For us, giving back means so much more than just writing a check – we really want to make a difference. We’re so pleased to help support the Ability programs, and are committed to supporting the YMCA special needs community,” said Jim Meehan, managing partner at 1847Financial.

The resources from 1847Financial will go toward the rental of a “cool down” trailer, providing a suitable sensory processing area during summer camp and the purchase of program supplies for the Seekers program and transportation to and from programming.

“The contribution from 1847Financial provides much-needed supplies and services for our special needs community,” said Zane Moore, president/CEO of YMCA of Bucks County. “Their partnership with us in serving our community is so appreciated.”
