Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer High quality photos help us more successfully market the YMCA's programs and mission to the people of the Chippewa Valley, but our current image library is three years old. Since then, we have merged with the YMCA in Chippewa Falls, acquired the Eau Claire Indoor Sports Center, and opened the new John & Fay Menard YMCA Tennis Center. We need new images to use in digital and print publications.
