Greylock Donates $7,500 to Pittsfield Family YMCA Programs
PITTSFIELD, MA (July 22, 2014) — Greylock Federal Credit Union has donated $2,500 to the Pittsfield Family YMCA on behalf of the Marilyn Hamilton Literacy Program in collaboration with the Masons of St. John’s Lodge #10. Additionally, the Credit Union has donated $5,000 to a program which allows young people holding both a YMCA Annual Youth membership and a Greylock Federal Credit Union membership to attend one YMCA program for free.
Greylock’s Victoria May, Assistant Vice President, Manager Marketing Promotions & Partnerships said, “Greylock is always happy to support programs benefiting and enriching children’s lives. The Pittsfield Y’s Marilyn Hamilton Literacy Program and the YMCA free program opportunity are great examples of what we can all do to help kids find wholesome activities for the summer months.”
The literacy program is being held at Pitt Park until the end of the summer, serving children living in the Westside and Morningside neighborhoods. Activities include a literacy curriculum, sports activities and educational field trips. There is no cost for children to participate. For more information about the literacy program call Jenna at (413) 499-7650, ext. 45. The free program tickets, for eligible children, are available at any Greylock branch.
