Led by trained staff and volunteers, the Kingswood Youth Center (KYC) Bike Program encourages local youth from ages 12 to 18 to stay physically and mentally active in pursuit of adventure, enhanced curiosity, exercise and friendship. To help with this challenge, Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) donated $1,000.
“We’re thrilled to have MVSB’s support!” said Pam Sweeney, Executive Director of the Kingswood Youth Center. “This generous contribution will go a long way with our bike program, which promotes physical and mental activity. Funding from corporate neighbors, like MVSB, extends the longevity and effectiveness of this beloved program. Their support will go far in off-setting the cost of bike maintenance, repairs and replacement.”
“Our bike program offers tremendous opportunity for our local youth to keep moving, stay positive and enjoy nature,” added Zachary Porter, Associate Director of the Kingswood Youth Center. “It also enhances each child’s sense of adventure and curiosity. We’re extremely grateful to MVSB and this wonderful gift.”
“It’s an honor for us to support such a positive initiative,” said Robin Masteller, Regional Vice President and Branch Manager of the MVSB Wolfeboro office. “The Kingswood Youth Center’s Bike Program encourages our youth to stay active and fit. We’re happy to help in any way we can.”
