CLINTON TWP., NJ - More than 180 staff members at the Hunterdon County YMCA have contributed a total of $37,427 to the organization’s Annual Campaign.

Of those staff members, many have furthered their commitment by pledging to contribute one hour or more of their pay per pay period for the entire year. Staff from all areas of the Y participated, including part-time employees such as swim instructors, fitness staff, child care providers and Welcome Center staff.

Donations to the Annual Campaign support the Y’s financial assistance program which ensures that no child, adult or family is denied access to YMCA programs and services because of financial limitations. Last year, the Hunterdon Y provided more than $518,000 in financial assistance.

“I am humbled by the generosity of our staff," said Bruce Black, Hunterdon County YMCA President and CEO. "They see firsthand the benefits the Y offers local children and families and they are personally committed to ensuring that access to Y programs and services remains open to everyone.”

The Hunterdon YMCA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Financial assistance is offered in many forms. It can be reduced membership fees or assistance with programs, summer camp or child care. The Annual Campaign also enables community members to take advantage of Y programs at no cost such as LIVESTRONG for cancer survivors, Special Olympics, the Active Older Adult Center and Second Grade Learn to Swim.

Additionally, clients at a dozen community agencies such as Anderson House, Good News Home for Women, and ARC of Hunterdon receive complimentary Y membership, allowing them to benefit from participation in programs and services that build spirit, mind and body.

One Week, No Power in High Bridge

March 9, 2018

To the editor:

There are those of us in Hunterdon County that are still without power almost one week past the first storm. JCP&L has repeatedly changed the time and date of restoration. The spokesman flat-out lied to you when he said all 10,000 customers in Hunterdon would have power restored by Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. 

I live on Thomas Street in High Bridge. My husband, multiple ...
