FLITE receives YMCA Service to Youth Award

During the pandemic, FLITE and the YMCA of Greater Brandywine partnered to offer the COVID Academic Support Program. Through this partnership, children were able to come to the Upper Main Line YMCA each day and attend learning centers where they received support and supervision with virtual schooling while their parents were able to go to work.

In the words of UMLY Executive Director Brian Raicich, “Partnering with FLITE provided additional financial assistance which, combined with what the YMCA provided, expanded our resources and allowed us to serve a greater number of families in need.”
