Give hope with Westfield Youth Assistance this holiday season


For the fifth year, the Westfield Youth Assistance Program (WYAP) will participate in Giving Tuesday. This year, one loyal donor, George Kristo, will match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $12,500.

Giving Tuesday is a worldwide charitable giving day that occurs annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. There’s Black Friday, Cyber ​​Monday, and Giving Tuesday, a day set aside for people to transform their communities.

WYAP will use dollars raised through Giving Tuesday to mentor students who need additional educational support, provide financial assistance for winter and summer camp attendance, support the mentorship program, and put young people in contact with essential community support resources such as counseling and skills development.

“Every dollar received is used to change the life of a young person in need. Being able to match those dollars with George Kristo’s generous donation to our annual Giving Tuesday campaign brings us one step closer to giving Westfield youth every advantage to succeed,” said Steve Latour, Chairman of WYAP’s Board of Directors. “Donating to this campaign creates an opportunity for neighbors in Westfield and Hamilton County to come together. What we can continue to accomplish together is truly remarkable. I hope we can count on your support.
