Virtual Fitness Block

Over 15,000 times,

seniors isolated due to the pandemic logged into virtual fitness programs to maintain health and connections with each other while staying within the safety of their homes.



Food Delivery

4,984 boxes of food

were delivered throughout Whatcom County to those with food insecurities. The YMCA fleet of vans transported essential care kits, masks and food throughout 2020.



School-Age Hybrid Learning Block

249 families

received care and support with online learning. When parents had to go to work, they were able to rely on the YMCA to help teach, support and care for their school-age children. 



Emergency Childcare

Over 200 families

of emergency and essential workers received childcare so they could continue to serve our community. When things shutdown in March 2020, the Y continued to support families.
