YMCA giving out more scholarships during tough economy

MADISON (WKOW) -- The YMCA of Dane County says it's handing out more scholarships for programs and memberships this year because of the tough economy.

In 2008, it gave out $550,000 worth of scholarships.  If the pace continues until the end of 2009, it expects to give out $700,000.

The YMCA of Dane County has been a part of the community since 1886.
