Dear YMCA Community,
As the sun sets on the fifth week of our closure, we are all beginning to settle into the "new normal" that is working remotely, attending virtual exercise classes, and educating, entertaining, and engaging our children from home. We hope you and your families remain in good health and spirits. This week, I'd like to give you a quick update regarding our initiatives, both new and existing.
Caring for Our Staff
Staff Emergency Relief Fund (SERF)
was launched late last week. It was created for any West Suburban YMCA employee who has been furloughed due to COVID-19 and is in need of financial assistance. Requests are coming in each day, and we are fortunate to be able to provide some relief to our furloughed staff.
