We are excited to debut our new video featuring our own staff and members! Thank you to all of those who helped with and starred in our video. It shows how the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA is more than a gym, how we’re part of something bigger and work each and every day to strengthen our community. We are a charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of the individuals and families we serve, with a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We hope you enjoy watching!
