Donations Keep Swimming Free for Some

Meridian, Miss.
Many kids will be able to continue to swim for free this summer at Velma Young Park, thanks to a donation.

Friends of Velma Young Park made a donation that allows the first 20 children who arrive each day to enter and swim free of charge.

The Meridian City Council says that program has been a huge success.

Officials say the Charles Young Foundation has donated enough money to keep that program going in the summer of 2015 as well.
