SW KS YMCA’s announcing Holiday Shop and Drop events

( Christmas shoppers now have yet another reason to “shop local.” The Dodge City and Garden City Family YMCAs are hosting Holiday Drop & Shop childcare events every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Nov. 25 through Dec. 16 at the YMCA facilities.

Children will be supervised by experienced childcare professionals and the YMCA childcare directors. Activities include arts and crafts, playing games, swimming and watching movies. The YMCA will provide a sack lunch and a light snack for each child. All children must be able to use the restroom unassisted.

Fees for YMCA members are $20 per child per day, and $15 per additional child. And for program participants/non-members the fees are $30 per child per day, and $25 per additional child. Scholarships are available for those needing financial assistance with program fees. For more information, or to register, visit the YMCA Welcome Centers, located at 1224 Center St. in Garden City, and 240 San Jose in Dodge City.
