GHS Swim Team Collecting Books May 19 – 30

The high school swim team is collecting books for youth in grades K through 5 at the YMCA between May 19 and 30. The swimmers have provided a collection box at the Y and encourage the community to drop off their gently used, age appropriate books. The swim team does a service project together and they have chosen to accept a challenge to help the YMCA increase their library of books.

The swim team met with YMCA CEO Gray Stallworth who explained the need. You can read about the Y’s focus on reading and the opportunity to make a big impact here.

“The swim team wants kids in the YMCA’s summer programs to ‘dive into reading’ so their initial effort to help is to conduct this book drive before the summer,” explained GHS Swim Coach Ken Spruill.
