“The YMCA invited my family, and it’s been amazing! The food was so good, and sitting with my neighbors and family to enjoy a great meal was nice. The Y has supported my family with daycare and classes for over four years. YMCA is all about helping others, and I’m grateful for that,” said Maria Ortiz, Mother of 15 Area Residents & Fullerton Family YMCA Member.
