The City of Batavia Summer Recreation Program is well underway and is entering the third week of the six-week program. Each year the program sponsors a Community Service Day for all of the children to volunteer and give something back to their community. This year’s Community Service Project is scheduled for July 19th with all of the parks participating.
The 2016 project is a community-wide can/bottle drive to raise money for Crossroads House.
If anyone would like to contribute to this worthy cause, please feel free to deliver your cans or bottles to any of the parks (Farrall, John Kennedy, Lambert, Williams, Lions) on or before Tuesday, July 19, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or take them to the Batavia Youth Bureau, located at 12 MacArthur Drive. Program sponsors will make sure the donations are delivered to the parks.
The kids and the Rec Leaders from each park will also visit homes in their park’s neighborhoods on July 19 to solicit donations of cans and bottles.
If you have any questions or would like to help in any way, please call the Youth Bureau at 345-6420. Thank you for your anticipated assistance and support!
