The services the Y provides to kids and families are needed now more than ever. As our facilities reopen, we continue to remain committed to supporting our community throughout this crisis by providing:
- Drive-Through Food Distribution: When schools were mandated to close, many children lost access to healthy meals provided through their school’s free and reduced lunch program. As other businesses were required to close, additional families began to face food insecurity. Within a few days, we gathered resources to start distributing food at drive-through sites throughout Centre County. We’re currently providing food for over 2,000 kids and families in need at 30+ sites per day.
- Groceries for Families in Need: Several sites are currently distributing hundreds of bags full of groceries 1-2 times per week to families in need.
- Meals for Seniors and Veterans: We’re working with other local organizations to provide drive-through meal distribution for seniors and veterans.
- Virtual Health and Wellness Resources: Group exercise class offering at our branches are currently limited, but you can still join us for virtual classes with your favorite Y instructors. To access online classes, click here.
Thank you for playing such a vital role in our efforts to strengthen our community, particularly during this time. Please continue to follow all suggested measures to keep yourselves safe and healthy. If you would like to offer additional support, donations are being accepted at our branches during the day or by mail. You can also give online by clicking here.
