THOMAS E. HANNAH
Dear Valued YMCA Member,
The YMCA of Greater Spartanburg has a long and storied history of serving our community. We are currently facing unprecedented times with the rapidly changing situation surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus, where adjustments have to be made on a day-to-day basis.
Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our community, members, volunteers and staff.
Based on the information we have been provided, our Board of Directors has decided beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 6:00 pm, we will temporarily suspend facility use at both branches. We will re-evaluate this decision on April 1st.
In the meantime, we will offer online classes as an option to help you remain fit.
Because of the impact of school closures and growing demand on medical professionals and essential service providers, both branches will transition into school-age childcare centers for children of essential service providers, including doctors, nurses, technicians, first responders, pharmacy and grocery store employees. The YMCA will also continue to provide services for our current after school program participants until other arrangements can be made.
We ask that you join us in this effort by remaining a member so that we can do good work together in this time of uncertainty. We know your membership is rooted in the relationships you have built at the Y; these relationships are based on the humanity we share with each other. Please remain with us as we write a story of how we came together, continued our wellness journey at home and served those who needed us the most. Thank you for being a cause-driven YMCA member.
