The City of Fremont’s Parks and Recreation Scholarship Fund is seeking donations for their scholarship program administered by the Community Services Department. The program is designed for children who, without financial assistance, would not have the opportunity to participate in the Department’s youth activities. The scholarship program makes enriching activities such as swim lessons, participation in the Tiny Tots preschool program, camps, reading development, art classes, etc., more accessible to low-income families by partially covering up to $75 of the cost of current registration fees for youth who qualify. Each year, requests for assistance increase as does the need for funding. More than 400 scholarships were given out last summer and a 10 percent increase in need is anticipated for this summer. A contribution would have a direct, positive, and life-enhancing impact for families and youth in Fremont.
Children who qualify for the “School Lunch” program are eligible to apply. One hundred percent of donations are directed toward subsidizing these classes and activities for low-income youth that need the support.
