  • All 17 NORD pools are open at no charge! However, proper swim attire is required to jump in. Help assure all of our children and families have the opportunity to enjoy the pools by dropping off swimsuits at any NORD center, City Hall, or you can purchase a swimsuit through the Walmart swimsuit registry set up by the Foundation.  Click here and go shopping! All swimsuits will be either delivered to or picked up by the Foundation and dropped off to NORD.
  • Host a fundraiser! Have a great idea? Reach out to the Foundation and share your vision.
