ROCK SPRINGS — YWCA Sweetwater County has received a $7,500 donation from the U.S. Bank Foundation.

Funds received will assist YWCA clients receiving financial empowerment services as well as the Summer Day Camp. YWCA Financial Empowerment provides education, resources and tools to assist individuals in becoming fiscally responsible and independent.

There are many online resources that offer basic financial education, however, YWCA feels that by providing this information in person there is a greater chance of creating a successful change in habits.
