Reading Rotary recently donated $2,500 to the Burbank YMCA to support their COVID-19 relief efforts which include providing emergency child care, groceries, meals and much more to area families.
In the first 3 months of the COVID-19 crisis, the Greater Boston YMCA provided free emergency child care across 12 sites to nearly 400 children of essential workers from 132 companies for a total of 133,570 hours of safe and nurturing care. And, along with its partners, delivered over 960,000 grab and go and prepared meals to children and adults and 46,243 bags of groceries, feeding a family of 4 for 3 days and seniors for a week, across 59 locations. 
Area Y's came together to hold the Together We Care Virtual Gala on June 6 and raised over $200,000 to support their vital community programs.  
We are pleased and proud to partner with and sponsor the Y.
