Select YMCAs offer free childcare for parents on Election Day
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The YMCA wants to make sure busy parents can make it to the polls next Tuesday, so they are offering free childcare on Election Day.
The free childcare is part of a program called “Zoe’s Kids Day Out” which is an initiative to ensure kids spend time in a safe environment while their parents vote.
“Unfortunately, many people who want to vote find it challenging because they have to take children with them. The Y’s hope is that Zoe’s Kids Day Out initiative enables those parents and caregivers to exercise their right to vote, and ensures children can spend their time in a safe, nurturing environment,” said Kevin Washington, president and CEO of YMCA of the USA.
Some locations are offering the child care for free, while others offer it for a small fee or donation. Find your local Y by visiting their website and giving them a call directly to find out if the service is free.
