Russ Darrow Group & Kettle Moraine YMCA Send Kids to Summer Day Camp


For the third consecutive year, the Russ Darrow Group’s dealerships in West Bend participated in a program to support the Kettle Moraine YMCA’s “Send a Kid to Camp Campaign.”


During the month of May, the Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, Nissan, and Toyota dealerships in West Bend contributed a portion of their vehicle sales to the campaign. Darrow’s $7,500 donation provided more than 100 local kids in need with the opportunity to attend Y Summer Day Camp.


“We are honored to again sustain this amazing community program and grant children the opportunity to participate in a range of activities that are fun, informative, and team building,” said Mike Darrow, President and Chief Operating Officer. “We are grateful to our devoted West Bend area customers who allowed our dealerships to support these children as they become involved in nature, find new skills, and create enduring bonds and remembrances.”


Last year, 27% of local kids who attended Y Summer Day Camp received financial assistance through the Y’s Annual Campaign. The recipe for a wonderful childhood includes adventure, learning, safety, friends and fun! Our camp program builds upon these components to help children grow in their sense of belonging as they meet new people and develop lifelong friendships. Throughout the summer, the Y is able to provide 2,400 minutes of outdoor activities, 300 minutes of swimming each week, 12 fun field trips and zero minutes of cell phones or social media use!
