I'd like to share a rather unusual free resource...parenting tips bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, organizations, agencies, clinics, businesses, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each one communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations start up and often a phone is used to take a pic of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones.
Is this YMCA "open" as noted in this page a week ago and again on 8/8/2020?

Thank you for sharing my family emergency medical fundraiser with your Facebook and other networks. Every donation is such a kindness and truly a blessing that helps my children. https://www.facebook.com/donate/660029341230034/?fundraiser_source=external_url
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone in management can provide transparency on payments during the coronavirus? I was charged for my family plan in April despite the Y being closed at least until May 18th (assuming based off Mayor Garcettis orders). Will we be reimbursed for this time or how will this proceed? Thanks!

Something really needs to be done about the parking garage exit. I have waited approx. 10 minutes to exit yesterday and today, as well as countless times over the year + since the garage has been open. There MUST be a better solution. The exit malfunctions so often. Maybe people should prepay instead. There never seems to be a problem going in. It is always going out.
Looking for a gym buddy. I go Monday through Friday 10am -2pm
How Much Are the New Parking Fees Going To Be??
Hey Westside Y! This is a super fun opportunity for the right family! ASG Casting in Hollywood is looking for active families for a paid market research study in the Los Angeles area. Each member can make $600 and more for just a few hours!!!

Looking specifically for a family with a fun & energetic 7-9 year old child.

If selected, candidates will be asked to participate in an activity on August 11th in Los Angeles. Activities include dance, yoga, pilates, meditation, massage, Tai Chi, or a nutrition class.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

THANK YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
It has been an amazing and impactful year, and one of the ways the Collins & Katz Family YMCA responded to needs during the pandemic was our hygiene program. Funded in part by the City of LA, the Y provided 1001 individuals experiencing homelessness with a total of 21,074 showers. With the community’s help, patrons were also provided with necessities such as food, clothing, towels, hygiene products and a caring voice in troubling times. We can be extremely proud of what our Y accomplished, but it would not have been possible without the help of many community partners.

The Y extends a special THANK YOU to the following organizations:

Rotary Club of Beverly Hills
Big Sunday
Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment
Councilmember Mike Bonin
Dollar Shave Club
Hollywood Food Coalition
Karsh Family Social Service Center
LAPD Headquarters
PATH - Making it Home
Purist Group
The Ridge
West Los Angeles-Sawtelle Neighborhood Council
Westside Food Bank
Westwood Village Rotary Club
