At around 9:30pm on September 29th, the Downtown Y building at 1000 N Market St recieved extensive water damage. Due to environmental concerns, the Downtown Y building will be closed for a minimum of 5 days.

In response to the outpouring of concern by the community, the YMCA of Frederick County has set up a fund to help defray the cost necessary for the repairs and refurbishment of the Downtown Y and Early Learning Center.

We would like to thank anyone that is able to offer their financial support during the cleaning and rebuilding process. 

Thanks for your support!

Thank you all so much for your support. Words can't describe how much it's appreciated that you chose to give from your heart to help your Y offset some of the cost of the restoration to the Downtown Y facility.
As many of you probably know, all of the areas affected by the water are open again! We still have work to do, but have been able to return to a normal schedule again.
Please share this video update with friends and family!
