"We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”

Winston Churchill

’Tis is the season of togetherness and gift giving, and who better to give to than the children of your own community? Because of the generous donations that community members make to the Recreation for Youth Fund—which was established in 1995 to serve the children of El Dorado County—about 150 of the city’s youth are able to take one of the enriching classes that Placerville’s Recreation and Parks Division offers every year. If families with financial constraints meet the requirements for receiving Youth Assistance, the Youth Fund will (currently) pay for 50 percent of their child’s class registration fees once every six months.

The City of Placerville believes every child deserves the chance to learn to paint, dance, swim or play basketball. However, the funds are running low! Not only would you receive the satisfaction of knowing that 100 percent of your money is going directly to the children of our community, but your name will also be posted in the Activity Guide that is delivered to more than 10,000 residents three times a year. Help keep this program alive and make sure that no child is turned away.

To donate, call 530-642-5232 or mail a check to 549 Main Street, Placerville, CA 95667.
