Harvest Youth Board providing swimming lesson opportunities for students

By  | 

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) Martinsville first graders can now take swimming lessons at the YMCA for free, thanks to a new grant.

The Harvest Youth Board presented a $2,500 grant to the Martinsville-Henry County YMCA.

The students will get five days of swim lessons, new goggles and a t-shirt next year there.

The board says it's all about helping those who may not be able to afford it get exercise and learn all about water safety.
