  • YMCA Bright Beginnings

    John Rolfe Family YMCA is participating in Bright Beginnings this year! We are excited to shop with local children to provide them with the resources they need to go back to school. We are looking for volunteers to shop with these children on our shopping night; it is an experience you will not forget. We are sponsoring children from our programs, Moving Forward- Pediatric Cancer Survivorship, and Super Sibs through our partnership with ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. To volunteer please contact Patricia Green at greenp@ymcarichmond.org For more information on YMCA Bright Beginnings or to donate, click here.
