Rochester, NY -- Delta Air Lines has donated $25,000 to the YMCA of Greater Rochester's urban youth sports programs for 2013-14.
The donation will promote the Love-15 tennis program, and basketball, indoor soccer and swimming youth urban sports programs, which are designed to teach basic skills, rules, etiquette, and positive values to the 400-plus children the Y serves each summer.
Additionally, more than a dozen Delta volunteers spent time Tuesday participating in conditioning drills and playing tennis with children in the Love-15 program during the Love-15 Open House event
The tennis program is a free, instructional program open to any Rochester city resident age 8 to 16. The sites are strategically located to target lower-income youth who would not ordinarily have access to tennis courts.
