THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

One south Georgia YMCA is asking for your help to continue offering scholarships and programs to the community.

Thomasville's annual "Why the Y Campaign" helps each of the city's three facilities provide free or discounted swim lessons, summer camps, after school care, and more.

This year's goal is to raise $90,000.

"It allows us to give scholarships to kids and families in need. The need is great and this campaign really allows us to continue to fulfill our charitable cause," said YMCA CEO Tom Everett.
