CYC receives Stewart’s Holiday Match Donation

LAKE PLACID – Lake Placid/Wilmington Connecting Youth and Communities is the recipient of the Stewart’s Holiday Match donation of $300.

CYC will use the donation to help fund the after school tutoring program at the Lake Placid Middle/High School library.

The Stewart’s Holiday Match Program has now allocated over $28 million since the program’s inception 1986.

“We are delighted to receive the Stewart’s Holiday Match this year,” said CYC President Jason Leon. “The money will directly impact programs that we have for local students. The after school tutoring program will be able to continue through Stewart’s generosity.”

The after school tutoring program is available to all students in the Middle High school. It takes place Monday through Thursday at the Lake Placid Middle/High School Media Center from 2:45 to 5:30 p.m. Each day between nine and 35 students take advantage of this opportunity. We believe this program assists in closing the opportunity gap that exists in our school.
