Partner with the Y in Supporting Those Affected by the Carr Fire

The Y is accepting monetary donations to go directly to help those affected by the Carr Fire. We expect the need for financial assistance for membership, child care and programs to be great, whether short term or long term.  Families have had to incur the cost of evacuating, some have damaged homes, some lost homes, others lost jobs, routines have changed, and, for a lot of us, there is a loss sense of security. The Y can help.

“At the encouragement of my medical provider, I began attending Enhance®Fitness classes at the YMCA. I needed something close to home that would keep me coming back week after week. Since starting I have seen improvements in my strength, mobility, and agility, and my blood pressure has even improved! I am inspired to keep attending by the competence and friendliness of the instructor. My favorite thing about the Y is the variety the class offers and getting to know my friendly class mates and staff at the Y.”
