Kelco FCU, Final Touch Contribute Gifts for Holiday Season
For the eighth consecutive holiday season, two area businesses have made both monetary and non-monetary donations to the Allegany County Public School’s Project Y.E.S. (Youth Experiencing Success) Program. The money will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for several deserving high school students, and the non-monetary contributions will be wrapped for opening on Christmas morning.
Kelco Federal Credit Union donated a total of $400 to be divided evenly among each of the four Project Y.E.S. offices in the school system. The Final Touch Sports Shop donated four embroidered sweatshirts with school logos to each office.
The Project Y.E.S. program is one that offers in-school support, tutoring services, and guidance in career planning to all qualifying ACPS students in grades six through twelve. There is a Project Y.E.S. office located in each area high school combining with the school’s feeder middle school.
Dr. Ben Brauer is the Project Y.E.S. supervisor, and coordinators from each school group are as follows: Terri Danner, Mountain Ridge and Mt. Savage; Sydney Sibley, Fort Hill and Washington; Terena Roberts, Career Center and Westmar; and Heather Kaiser, Allegany and Braddock.
