Help us to meet our goal of $3,000 so that 30 more children can enjoy the recreation program of their choice
Meet an Elgin Family - Uriel and Kayleen Perez live on Elgin's eastside, their family has lived in Elgin 14 years. Uriel is in 8th grade at Canton Middle School and Kayleen is in 3rd grade in Hilltop Elementary School. Their family has been benefitting from the Elgin Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund for the past four years. During 2018 their activity of choice has been swimming for fun, but also taking swim lessons. They both like being in water and Kaylee especially likes that being in the water helps her release her energy.
Their mother, Guadalupe, is very thankful for the Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund because without it her children would not be able to visit the pools and take swim lessons. When asked what she would say to the people who donate the funds to make the Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund available, Guadalupe said "I would like to thank them for their generosity. I pray that God may continue blessing them for having such big hearts to help their neighbor".
