YMCA of Southwest Illinois
February 2012-Michelle Burton chose 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program, Southwest Illinois YMCA. Michele wrote, before coming to MetroGistics, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with the high school students at Cahokia East High School through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program. This program is sponsored by the Southwest Illinois YMCA. I chose this organization because I got to see firsthand the difference this program makes in the lives of youth. The program offers tutoring, mentoring, recreation, and enrichment activities for the students. I have a special place in my heart for these students because I believe in all of them.
“Thank you so much. I have just received your check and we will use it immediately to better our efforts serving the youth of this community. Again, thanks for your organization’s generous donation.”
