Dear Valued Members and Families,

 

For over 150 years, the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette has been called upon in times of crisis to serve our communities. We provided comfort and relief during chaotic time like the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, the Great Depression, 911, and the Swine Flu outbreak. Today we face a new and challenging crisis.

 

In response to this unprecedented time, our Y has transitioned to provide immediate and critical child care services to our frontline individuals.  Following Stay Home, Stay Healthy orders, membership operations at the YMCA of Columbia Willamette continue to be closed.  It is our hope to open immediately once restrictions are lifted.  We encourage you to visit our website for updates as they are available.

 

We are currently offering exciting virtual wellness options to keep you healthy at home. You can visit our virtual YMCA page to view a growing number of virtual fitness options.  You will also find activities for our younger participants.

 

In addition, we are working with the Red Cross to offer blood drives, making wellness calls to our members, partnering with churches to provide pastoral care, working with food shelters, organizing volunteers for community outreach along with other activities. 

 

We invite you to support our efforts by keeping your membership current as a charitable donation or by making a charitable investment at https://www.ymcacw.org/donate.  If you have any other questions regarding your membership, please contact us

 

In times like this, please know that YOUR YMCA is serving as a beacon of hope and normalcy to our families. Thank you for your continued support. Together, we will unite and overcome!

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Eddie White, Executive Director

Clark County Family YMCA
