Now more than ever, your donation makes a difference at the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario.
In an unprecedented decision and to protect our community, the Y has made the extremely difficult decision to close its operations involving Camps, Health, Fitness and Aquatic facilities, Child Care Centres and Language Instruction programs, until the determination is made to reopen operations based on the direction of our public health officials.
Every effort is being made to support our staff team who are affected, our clients and the communities that rely on having access to safe, inclusive Y locations.
While our doors are closed, there are many ways our Y is here to support you.
Stay active and connected with Y THRIVE, a free fitness program that you can do from your home!
In partnership, some of our Y locations are available for health care providers to access showers in a clean location before going home.
Visit our Virtual YMCA of Southwestern Ontario and stay connected with your Y community. We will continue to share stories, recipes, health and wellness tips, on-demand videos, activities for children, and more.
We continue to work with our community partners to find new ways to support our community through this crisis.
If you chose to make a donation through this appeal to support the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario, your donation will help us with our highest priority needs while we move through this time.
Please continue to support your family, friends and neighbours; be ambassadors of good will and the values of the Y. We will need everyone's help, diligence and support to get through this time.
