    The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted families and employers in our community. As caregivers re-enter the workforce, many are in need of immediate childcare assistance. With your support, we can provide childcare resources to families as well as help employers retain their workforce.

    Join us on Saturday, September 26th from 9:00AM to 10:00AM for a FREE virtual workout led by Chantelle Farmer and senior instructors (Jenny Henion, Jessica Kerns, and Carrie Susskind) from FLX Fitclub! Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the United Way of Tompkins County and the Ithaca Youth Bureau to help families facing current childcare challenges.
