The Duneland Family
YMCA is pleased to participate in the annual Toys for Tots toy drive again
this year. Toys for Tots was developed in 1947 by the United States Marine
Corps to collect and distribute toys to children whose parents can't afford
to purchase them. Now across America, hundreds of locations partner with
USMC during the holiday season to help provide happiness to children at
Christmas time. "It's a great partnership," said Carla Patino-Davis, Y
Membership Director. "The Toys for Tots toy box is in our Front Lobby.
Helping others is at the heart of our mission."
The Y has been at
work in the Duneland communities for many years to help ensure that families
have resources available to learn, grow and thrive. "If you're thinking
about becoming a Y member, what better time than now?" Patino-Davis said.
"With the Y, you're not just a member of a facility; you're part of a cause
to help strengthen the community. Bring in a new, unwrapped toy to donate to
Toys for Tots, and receive 75% off the joiner's fee. It's our gift to you!"
A membership at the
Duneland Family YMCA provides a place to create memories and to make an
impact. Included with Y Membership are more than sixty (60) weekly free
group fitness classes and a complimentary hour-long orientation with a
Certified Personal Trainer. Children ages 6 weeks to 11 years of age receive
complimentary child care in the Fun Zone, supervised by caring, well-trained
adults while parents work out. Discounted rates are provided to Y members
for youth sports, personal training, building rentals and more.
Located at 215
Roosevelt St., Chesterton, the Y is open 7 days a week.
