Recent Operation Round Up Grants to the Lafayette Family YMCA Preschool and Central Catholic High School Athletic Association are making a difference in our communities.
The Lafayette Family YMCA Preschool stopped by to present a thank you to members of the Operation Round Up board. An April 2017 grant helped purchase activity tables, chairs, high chairs, infant swing and bouncy seats for meals, play, and rest.
An April 2016 Operation Round Up grant helped Central Catholic High School Athletic Association rebuild dugouts at Jimmy DeBoy Field 51. Several teams from throughout Greater Lafayette were able to host games and the first tournament ever on Field 51. Today, the facility is used almost daily as a practice facility for many teams associated with Lafayette Youth Baseball.
