Somerville Family YMCA Branch Welcoming Residents Without Power to Shower, Use Wi-Fi, and Get Warm

Somerville YMCA open for residents; Hillsborough and Bridgewater YMCA are closed.

The Somerville Branch of the Somerset Valley YMCA is operating and has opened its doors to all in the community who have lost power.

SVY CEO Paul Kieltyka said all residents are welcome to use the facility at 2 Green Street.

“We want to let everyone know that we are open and we are inviting our members and anyone else who has lost power to use our
showers, power up their cell phones and laptops, and get some hot coffee,”
Kieltyka said.

Due to storm conditions caused by Hurrican Sandy, all Somerset Valley Y branches were closed
Monday and Tuesday. Somerville re-opened on Wednesday. The Bridgewater and Hillsborough branches remain closed as neither facility has power.

In Somerville, the Y saw a steady stream of local residents come in Wednesday to use the facility. Tables were set up in the all-purpose rooms and even in hallways near outlets to accommodate people who wanted to charge their electronic devices. The building also has Wi-Fi.

“We will keep our doors open to the entire
community for as long as we are needed,” said Mr. Kieltyka.

The Y is open from 5 a.m. to 9:45 p.m.

The Somerville Y’s daycare is also open and its “Kids Day Out” program for kids who need a place to go when school is out is also open. Child care begains at 7 a.m. Please call 908—722-4567 for information and "Kids Day Out" rates or stop in at 2 Green Street.

I have to comment on the YMCA during these difficult times. Even though I am a member of one of the branches, we have needed to use their other facilities while we were out of power. The staff is always very friendly, professional and accomodating. During the good times, and the difficult times the staff members are the YMCAs are a great group of people, and this is a great organization. Thank you YMCA, you make our community a better place to live.
