Placerville Recreation and Parks: Give Where You Live

11/20/2018 11:07AM

‘Tis the season for togetherness and giving, and who better to give to than the children of our own community? Because of the generous donations that locals make to the city’s Recreation for Youth Fund, about 150 children are able to take one of the enriching classes Placerville’s Recreation and Parks Division offers every year. 

The fund was established in 1995, and 100 percent of every donation is dispersed to the children who apply. If families with financial constraints meet the requirements for receiving assistance, the fund pays for 50 percent of their child’s class registration once every six months.

The city believes every child deserves the chance to learn to paint, dance, swim, play basketball, or learn karate. Help keep this program alive and make sure no child is turned away. By donating, you receive the satisfaction of knowing that your money is going directly to the children of our community and get your name posted in the Recreation and Parks Activity Guide that’s delivered to over 10,000 residents three times a year.
