Your monthly membership draft is crucial in enabling us to pivot our Y facilities to meet a critical need in our community. We are providing emergency relief care for children of health care workers, first responders and other essential employees, so that they can continue to focus on public health and access to important resources. We continue to assess community needs and are looking for more ways to serve.
If you are a member, you may continue your monthly draft and convert it to a donation, or you can put your membership on hold until Ys reopen. Let us know your preference by completing the Membership Update Form.
To help you stay healthy in body, mind and spirit during this time, check out our online videos, available at no cost.
