Make-a-Splash Program Congratulates Newest Swimmers

Category: Community

Jacksons joined the Treasure Valley YMCA in congratulating third graders who finished up their swimming lessons at the Caldwell YMCA yesterday, through this season's Make-a-Splash program. 

Thanks to a $25,000 contribution made by Jacksons Food Stores, the YMCA was able to expand the program to area schools including those in Caldwell, Vallivue and Homedale school districts. Over 1,000 third graders are taking swimming lessons through the program.

Make-a-Splash is a national water safety initiative created by the USA Swimming Foundation in an effort to provide access to swim lessons for children around the country.
