The YMCA of Montclair Receives Grant from Investors Foundation to Launch Senior Hour Health and Wellness Programming
The YMCA of Montclair recently received a $7,500 grant from Investors Foundation at its Park Street Branch on March 17, 2021. The grant will help further the Y’s mission of healthy living by serving seniors and vulnerable populations.
The YMCA of Montclair’s Senior Hour program will exclusively serve up to 500 seniors and medically vulnerable populations at the Park Street YMCA.
The Y will offer seniors and those in chronic disease programs for diabetes and high blood pressure, exclusive access to exercise equipment, group-ex classes such as chair yoga, and the swimming pool.
“Our Y continues to maximize safety and minimizes risk so our senior members and chronic disease program participants can improve their physical health by exercising, but also their mental health by reducing feelings of isolation and anxiety,” said Buddy Evans, President and CEO of the YMCA of Montclair.
