COASTSWEEP encourages families to volunteer and help preserve some of the nicest
Living on the North Shore has a lot of benefits, and one of the best is our proximity to the beach.  Wherever you might be living or visiting on the North Shore, you are never more than a half-hour car ride from the nearest spot to bury your toes in the sand.  We have miles and miles of beautiful beach available to us, and it's our obligation to help keep it clean.

 

Back to School
It is often challenging to find a backpack that is ‘cool’, just the right size for all of the school day necessities and fits correctly! Correct fit should be your first priority! Consider this: If a child carries his or her backpack for only 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon, they will carry it for 2 hours and 30 minutes per week.  There are 180 school days in a year.  That means the child would carry the backpack for 5,400 minutes or 90 hours per year.  It makes sense to choose the right backpack that fits well!

 

School Supply Drive for North Shore Kids
This September, many local children will head back to school without a backpack, pens, paper, and crayons. Help Community Giving Tree distribute supplies to more than 1000 school kids by sponsoring a filled backpack or by donating new items. Every kid deserves to start the school year with the supplies needed for success.

 

YMCA of the North Shore Before and After School Programs
Learning continues after the bell! YMCA Before and After School programs keep kids active and learning through activities designed to teach and reinforce healthy habits—all in a safe, fun environment. We welcome children grades K through 5 at sites located at elementary schools and Y locations across the North Shore.
