BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The Titusville YMCA Family Center was recently awarded a $15,000 grant from the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation to support its Annual Scholarship Campaign.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, The YMCA of Central Florida relies on the help from community partners to further its cause of strengthening communities and making sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

All of the funds donated by the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation will go towards providing local families and children in Titusville, who would not otherwise be able to afford it, with access to the YMCA’s facilities and evidence-based programs.

“We are so grateful to have the continued support of an amazing and mission-based organization like the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation,” said Chrissy Elliott, Executive Director for the Titusville YMCA.

“Donations like theirs allow us to provide memberships and programs, including life-saving swimming lessons, to hundreds of our neighbors in the community who are in great need.”
