ATHOL — A $100,000 gift will allow more children to enjoy all that nature has to offer at Camp Wiyaka.

Athol Savings Bank recently contributed $10,000 to the Athol Area YMCA, which provides financial assistance for Camp Wiyaka.

Located in the picturesque hills of Richmond, N.H., Wiyaka is a residential summer camp where children have the opportunity to progress developmentally within nature. In addition, the donation makes the YMCA Preschool Center affordable for local families who require financial assistance.

“We are proud to support the Athol Area YMCA, who does so much for families and youth within the region” said Daniel Zona, president of Athol Savings Bank.

“The YMCA provides meaningful experiences and promotes healthy lifestyles to adolescents which lends itself to strong and stable communities,” said Debra Vescovi, Athol Savings Bank Senior vice president. “We are so grateful to have a YMCA right in our neighborhood,” Vescovi added.

“Athol Savings Bank is a longtime supporter of the YMCA. We appreciate its recognition of the YMCA’s important work to help the youth in our community learn, grow and thrive,” said Jeanette Robichaud, Athol Area YMCA executive director.

“With the continued support of businesses and organizations like Athol Savings Bank, we can continue the essential task of strengthening our community by helping our people live happier and healthier lives,” said Robichaud.
