Around the world, you’ll find teachers who can tell you about a student who came to school on Monday, not reluctant to start the school week but eager to get back to school after going through the weekend without a meal.
The YMCA of Sumter is partnering with Willow Drive Elementary and their PTO with the Backpack Program to ensure that these children are provided with food they need to learn and grow. Each backpack offers enough food that children can easily assemble over the weekend when schools are unable to provide breakfast and lunches. Donation bins will be located near the member service desk and youth center turnstiles.
May 5 – June 1
We would like your help by donating items such as pop-tarts, cereal bars, and pudding cups.
Please contact Denise Lewis if you have any questions.

Your Y just got a whole lot bigger! We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout our state, at no extra charge. Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at the Y you’re visiting and enjoy free access to all of South Carolina’s 53 Y branches.
Some restrictions and exclusions may apply. Prior to visiting a Y we recommend members contact the Y they wish to visit for more information.
For a complete list of the YMCAs across South Carolina visit here.
You can find more information and details about the program here. Now get out, explore and stay connected to the Y.
