FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA will be participating in Zoe’s Kids Day Out, a nationwide initiative to provide kids a safe place to play on Election Day, making it easier for busy parents and caregivers to get to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Acknowledging taking kids to the polls may add stress for busy parents and caregivers, the Y is committed to doing its part to make sure all Americans can vote.

Free child care* is available at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA, 1340 Martine Avenue in Scotch Plains, from 6:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. so parents can go vote. Election Day Child Care is open to the community. (*1-hour time limit. Parents must present a Driver’s License at drop-off/pick-up.)

As the largest nonprofit provider of child care in the U.S., the Y helps nurture  children and encourage them to learn and grow. Supporting parents and caregivers is a crucial component of nurturing children. Zoe’s Kids Day Out initiative is yet another way the Y is aiming to lend a hand.

Zoe’s Kids Day Out is an extension of Zoe for President, an initiative to elect a one-year-old girl as our nation’s Commander in Chief…in 2064. The campaign highlights the potential the Y sees in all kids to grow up and change the world if they’re nurtured properly and supported along the way. Through Y programs like academic enrichment, mentorship, college readiness, job training and more, kids have the opportunity to grow, to succeed, and one day, maybe even become president. 

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
