YMCA’s Tot Trot to raise money for child care scholarship 

Rebecca Nowalski

The Child Care Services Branch of the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge & South Amboy is holding its 11th annual Tot Trot & Fall Festival on Oct. 13, rain or shine, at Metuchen High School, 400 Grove Ave., Metuchen.

The charity event helps the Y support families from the community by providing scholarship assistance to those unable to pay the full cost of child care. The fund also provides aid to families in crisis and allows us to temporarily provide tuition assistance in the event of a family emergency.

Families with children from crawlers to 12 years old are invited to join the event beginning at 9:30 a.m. There will be vendors and activities prior to the races including games, crafts, a bounce house, face painting and tattoos. Vendors and food trucks will be on site.

Registration is available at www.runsignup/ymcaofmewsatt.
