Give to Michael’s Fund to Help Those in Need

The Michael A. Constantino Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2019 at the Clarion County YMCA. The YMCA created the fund with Michaelโ€™s parents, Kim and Dave Constantino, in memory of their son whose life was cut short in a drowning accident in 2004 at the age of seven. This trust has been created to fund swim lessons for children in need. Michael had a huge heart and would have loved to help others by making sure they could afford swimming lessons. His memory is sure to live on in the new swimmers that are born each day.
