The YMCA is thoroughly cleaning each facility, all equipment, and buses. The Y is making as many cost-effective enhancements as possible while their facilities are temporarily closed.
The YMCA is a nonprofit charity that relies on membership dues and donations to support most of the work they do. Without ongoing support from YMCA members, there would be a critical gap in the vital services the Y provides to the community.
“We are grateful for those of you who continued their membership payments during the temporary operational adjustment,” said the Y in a release. “However, we are sensitive to individual financial needs and circumstances. So, if you elected to place a hold on your membership during this challenging time, we will be releasing the holds effective May 12, 2020. If you need additional financial support, please contact us.”
The YMCA is planning to offer day camp at their Greenwood and Laurens facilities. As summer approaches, the YMCA will inform parents and families about details. Registration is now open for day camp.
Members are asked to bring their membership card for check-in. Member service staff will be verbally issuing a health screening prior to entry.
