Today 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 November 6. Taking kids to the polls may add stress for busy parents and caregivers; the Y is committed to doing its part to help remove barriers to voting so that all Americans can vote.
“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.”
