Thunderbirds Charities has made a $250,000 contribution to the Valley of the Sun YMCA in support of the Y’s water safety, day camp, afterschool and resident camp quality improvement and outreach enhancements.

“We are pleased to support the work of the Y as they teach youth and families lifesaving information about water safety and how to swim, and serve children and teens through summer resident and day camp programs throughout this community,” says Andy Markham, president of Thunderbirds Charities.

Additionally, the YMCA received a special gift of $25,000 from Thunderbirds Charities in honor of past Thunderbirds Big Chief Len Huck, a community leader who had been involved with the Y for many years.
