When summer starts to heat up, there's nothing better than heading to the pool or beach with your family and friends to cool off. However, as outings near bodies of water begin to take place, it’s crucial to keep water safety top of mind.
Sadly, in 2021, drowning remains a leading cause of death for children, taking thousands of young lives every year in the United States. In fact, every day, two children fall victim to the lethal dangers that are associated with water-related accidents, leaving millions of families questioning what they could have done to prevent the unthinkable.
However, if you remain vigilant and put the right steps in place, these tragedies can be prevented.
To support bridging the knowledge gap around swim safety, Leslie’s is also announcing a three-year partnership with the YMCA focused on swim education.
Through an annual donation of $100,000, the YMCA will extend their water-safety programming to reach children at the highest risk of drowning and provide them with water-safety skills, education, and training.
Leslie’s will also be collecting donations to support the YMCA’s water safety programs in their stores through the summer. The partnership includes expanding access to swim lessons, lifeguard training and increased water safety program instruction at local YMCAs
