Strengthening our Community:

When the Governor closed gyms on March 16th, the Cheshire and Southington Ys had to rethink how we support our members and communities. 

We have not let our closed doors stop us from helping during this time of great need.  Here are some examples of how we are currently living our mission:

  • Providing emergency childcare for first responders and healthcare workers.
  • Fighting food insecurity in our community through cooperation with Bread for Life, the Cheshire Community Food Pantry and Boulder Knoll Community Farm
  • Ensuring essential blood drives are able to go on as scheduled in partnership with the American Red Cross
  • Providing Wellness check calls to members to make sure they are safe
  • Creating a virtual Y experience to promote both the physical and mental wellbeing of community members

We need your help to ensure we can continue to help those in need.

Once we are able to reopen our doors, there will be a larger than ever need for financial aid for YMCA programs.

You can make a positive impact for those who need us most by donating to your Y community today. Help keep youth, families, and individuals safe during this difficult time and give access to YMCA programs as quickly as possible when we reopen our doors.
