Waterford kids are getting the chance to put their spare time and energy to good use.
For the last few months, Dan Avey, director of Youth for Christ Norfolk County, has been working hand in hand with local business owners Kerry Bockenholt of Kerry's St. James St. Eatery and Amin Roomani Waterford Pharmacy and Health Food. Together, they organize activities to ensure that local youth, aged 11 to 18, have tons of fun while building friendships as part of a group called Y Waterford.
Avey and Bockenholt saw the need for a group to gives kids the chance to be kids and have fun.
"We're out there for the kids," says Avey.
" We saw a need for a free to low-cost program that local kids could take part in."
