What's Happening at the Y
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE YMCA EXPRESS AT GLOUCESTER
Dear YMCA Express at Gloucester Member,
It is deeply disappointing to announce the YMCA of the Virginia Peninsulas is closing our YMCA Express at Gloucester on April 30, due to financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was not an easy decision. Our staff and Board of Directors conducted an extensive review of the Y’s operations and finances in the hopes of finding an alternative to closing. Unfortunately, with the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, no alternatives proved feasible. We simply don’t have the financial resources to sustain operations at this facility.
We recognize that this is disappointing and inconvenient for you, and we deeply regret that. The most difficult part about this situation is the impact it will have on so many wonderful people – our members, program participants, volunteers, staff, and everyone in the Gloucester community.
All memberships will be honored until our closing date of April 30, and if you paid for your membership for a term beyond April 30, you will receive a pro-rated refund. As a “Thank you” for sticking with the Y during this challenging time, we will be extending your membership at no cost to be used at any other YMCA location through July 31, 2021. Please contact our membership support center at 757-247-9622 if you would like to transfer your membership to another location or have questions about a refund or any other aspect of the Y’s closing.
Our Y has proudly served the Gloucester community for more than five years, during which time we’ve had the privilege of helping kids, families, and individuals in our community thrive. We are incredibly grateful for your support, and we will look for ways to continue to serve this community as we are able.
While this decision was necessary, our YMCA’s future remains strong. We look forward to continuing to serve you at our other locations.
