Kelco FCU, Biederlack, the Final Touch all Contribute Gifts for Christmas
The Project Y.E.S. Program (Youth Experiencing Success) is one that offers in-school support, tutoring services, and guidance in career planning to all qualifying Allegany County Public School students in grades eight through twelve.
For the fifth year in a row, three local area businesses have made both monetary and non-monetary donations to this program. The monetary donations will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for several deserving high school students in need, and the non-monetary contributions will be wrapped and placed under these students’ trees to be opened along with the other gifts on Christmas morning.
Kelco Federal Credit Union donated a total of $400 to Project Y.E.S., with $100 going to each Project Y.E.S. office. Biederlack of America donated four blankets, one for each office, and the Final Touch Sports Shop donated a school sweatshirt to each office.
There is a Project Y.E.S. office located in each area high school combining with that school’s feeder middle school. The coordinators from each school group are as follows: Terri Danner, Mountain Ridge High School and Mount Savage Middle School; Sydney Sibley, Fort Hill High School and Washington Middle School; Terena Roberts, Career Center and Westmar Middle School; and Heather Kaiser, Allegany High School and Braddock Middle School.
