Chamber Awards Haverhill/Plaistow YMCA with Business of the Month
Haverhill, MA – The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce has named the Haverhill/Plaistow YMCA as its business of the month for January 2021.
The Haverhill YMCA has been a longstanding institution in the local community. Initially founded in 1855, the YMCA has provided recreation and education to local residents for the better part of two centuries. The YMCA has, for its long history remained committed to the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
Today, residents rely on the Haverhill YMCA for a myriad of services. Members can enjoy state-of-the-art fitness equipment, hundreds of group exercise classes, volunteer opportunities, and services for children including gymnastics, sports, and summer camp.
This year, the YMCA has made an ever-greater contribution to the community by providing childcare for first responders in the midst of the global pandemic. Their childcare services have made it possible for parents working in critical fields, like police and fire, to continue performing their essential roles.
“The Haverhill YMCA is a pillar of our community,” said Chamber President and CEO Irene Haley. “The staff’s commitment to maintain excellent services, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, is a testament to their ingenuity, compassion, and resolve. We are proud to name the Haverhill YMCA our business of the month.”
