The YMCA of Central and Northern Westchester and local schools have jointly established emergency child care at the White Plains and Somers YMCA locations. Your donation helps us serve those on the front line of the pandemic.

Pool Heater Fundraiser

At our Camp Combe branch, we are looking to place a heater in the pool. With the assistance of the heater we will be able to have the water warm enough for the younger children to be able to have swimming lessons, able to keep the pool open longer during the year and to begin having the pool available to the community.
