Fire evacuees find refuge at the Y

Fire evacuees find refuge at the Y

All YMCAs are opening their doors to people impacted by the wildfires burning across the province of BC. The YMCA has 12 locations in Prince George, Kamloops, Victoria, Kelowna and the Lower Mainland.

“We invite evacuees to visit the YMCAs to shower and clean up, rest in a safe space or take part in a drop-in program like basketball, fitness classes or swimming,” says Amanda Alexander, CEO of the YMCA of Northern BC. “We know that the province and many of BC’s children and families are in a state of emergency right now and we welcome all people impacted by the wildfires to find refuge at the Y.”

Evacuees simply need to visit the YMCA with identification that includes their photo and home address to participate.
