The United Way of Frederick County, describes the donation as an investment in the future.
The United Way of Frederick County recently gave the Frederick County YMCA $50,000 to help fund their Head Start Program.
Josh Pedersen, CEO United Way of Frederick County, describes the donation as an investment in the future.
"We recognized that the county didn't fund Head Start this past year and when the YMCA began administering the program, they were required to get a match. We felt this was an appropriate use of resources because this is a great service and a great community program."
Head Start provides educational, social, health and nutritional services to 282 three and four year old children through-out Frederick County.
Last year Frederick County Commissioners said they would no longer fund the local Head Start program.
