The Pandemic's Impact on Our YMCA --A Message from Our Board of Directors and Management Team

Donate Membership/Program CreditsDonate Any Amount

Dear Westfield Area YMCA Members and Friends,

Like all of you, we are continuing to monitor the impact of COVID-19.  With every difficult decision we make, we are following the best and latest guidance from the CDC and our local government officials.  We have been pleased to welcome back many of our members.  If you have returned to the Y, your membership has been reactivated and we thank you.

If you are not comfortable returning to the Y yet, we understand and ask you to please stay with us during this time. The community is not just our members, but our staff, our neighbors and our fellow nonprofits and businesses.

If you are able, we would be grateful if you would help offset the Y’s monthly fixed facility expenses by donating to the YMCA Operations Recovery Fund using the buttons above.  We thank everyone who has already contributed to our cause.

Our best to you and your family,

The Westfield Area YMCA Board of Directors and Management Team
