NEIGHBORHOOD AND COMMUNITY SERVICES: The YMCA collaborated with community agencies, churches, and municipalities in 2020 to the extent allowed with COVID-19. While many usual activities were not able to be held, the YMCA did participate in the Martin Luther King, Jr. parade as well as supported the community by contacting over 600 seniors weekly, collecting over 500 units of blood at 12 blood drives, provided remote learning to over 160 children, and provided childcare for essential workers to over 80 children. In total, over 12,800 people were served by YMCA programs and services in 2020. Additionally, over $75,000 was provided by the YMCA in direct subsidy to support low-income households. These dollars provided access to programs, facility membership, special events, and community celebrations. The YMCA also provided facility space and athletic field space to churches, school groups, and community groups. Over 80 hours of facility time was donated to non-YMCA groups for purposes of serving our community.
