The YMCA of Coastal Georgia announced that it will host free child care services on Election Day, providing busy parents and caregivers the opportunity to make it easier to get to the polls on Nov. 6.
“The Y has a long, proud history of promoting civic engagement. It’s an essential part of our cause to strengthen communities,” said Gina Casagrande, vice president for the YMCA of Coastal Georgia. “We know that one reason people may not vote is due to lack of child care and we want to ensure that those who want to, are able to make their voices heard. As the largest provider of child care in the country, the Y is uniquely positioned to offer care on Election Day to all families in the community.”
The Effingham YMCA: 1224 Patriot Drive, Rincon will offer care from 8:45 a.m.-noon and 4:30 p.m.-8 p.m.
Parents will need to complete a registration form and sign a waiver upon arrival at Childwatch if not a YMCA member.
