The Washington YMCA and Washington Community Schools worked collaboratively to apply for and receive a Play 60 initiative grant. The YMCA received several flag football kits to use with all students participating in their flag football program. Josh Riffel stated: "The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty teamed up with the National Football League Foundation to provide us with 10 footballs, 50 flag belts, and an NFL poster. I am very excited because this will provide around three hundred dollars’ worth of equipment for this upcoming fall season. The Washington Y is very pleased to have this collaboration with the Washington Community School District. This collaboration is extremely important to the Y because it provides an opportunity for youth in our community to receive mentorship from young student leaders and employees of our school district. Thanks for all your support.
