Are The Duluth And Superior YMCA’s Providing Child Care Service So You Can Vote November 8?

You may have heard that the YMCA of the USA recently announced an effort to get parents out to vote on November 8th.  Honestly, voting has been on the decline for the last few years and with the controversy of this election, additional incentive to get people to the polls is probably needed.  However, not all locations are offering the service.  I called our local YMCA's to see if they were participating and here is what I was told.

Attend the Project Joy Backpack Program and Help Feed Northland Children

FREE Life Jackets Offered For Kids And Teens By Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital And Kohl’s Cares

Minnesota law requires all children under the age of 10 to wear a life jacket on any boat or watercraft that is not docked.  Of course, for safety, life jackets are also recommended for children that are playing on shorelines and docks or near water.  With the number of lakes in our area, it only makes sense to make sure your child has his/her own life jacket and Essentia Health-St. Mary's Children's Hospital and Kohl's Cares is making that a bit easier by offering FREE life jackets.
