At the Ridgewood YMCA, everything we do is guided by our Mission and our commitment to serve and support the community. This is even more critical now. When you belong to the Y, you’re not only a member of a health and wellness facility, you’re a member of a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening our community. In difficult times, our YMCA pivots in response to community needs and finds ways to use our resources to offer solutions.
We're continuing to follow the mandates and recommendations of local, state and national officials, and because of that, our Y continues to be closed.
Your membership helps support our efforts to meet the critical needs in our community during this crisis. This outbreak has created enormous uncertainty for us all, but how we respond is within our control. As soon as it became apparent that our Y needed to change course to support our community, we did. Our teams immediately mobilized to explore ways to support you and our community.
By continuing to be a part of our Y you’re helping us deploy and expand these resources and services.
We have partnered with West Bergen Mental Health to deliver meals to their families in need and are in the finalizing our plans to support the NJ Food Bank this week.
We have held two blood drives to help respond to the critical blood shortage in our area. Both surpassed the Red Cross expectations in the amount of pints collected, and we are on call should they need our community to mobilize and again.
With recent school closures, families are adjusting to a new normal. It can be overwhelming to contemplate what to do with new-found time. We have compiled educational and fun resources for parents and children and continue to update our digital portal.
We continue to share resources to keep our members and participants safely connected, active and healthy during this time in spirit, mind and body, including access to the online workout video library.
But we can't do it alone. Our community is counting on you.
Thank you again for allowing us to place your membership on hold until we re-open. Further, we want to express our sincere gratitude to those who choose to join others and contribute your monthly fee will be drafted on April 20th (you will NOT be charged unless you OPT-IN). Your monthly membership fees for this period will be recognized as a donation. Have not had the chance, today is your day, Opt-In Today!
