The Chincoteague YMCA  is offering its members who are federal employees and have been furloughed, or working and not getting paid due to the government shutdown, a place to work out for free with their family.

Current members affected will not be billed for the duration of the government shutdown, with proof of documentation.

“Many government workers and their families may be living paycheck to paycheck, not knowing when they will be paid next. The YMCA is here to help relieve some of that stress,” says Katie O’Shea, Executive Director of the Chincoteague Island Family YMCA.
