Still out of power and looking for a place to get some relief? Manatee County YMCA branches are opening their doors to victims of Hurricane Irma.
Until Sept. 23, YMCA branches in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch and Parrish will be free and open to those who want to use the facilities to shower, cool off, charge their electronics or work out, according to an email sent to YMCA members. The Kid Zone will also be open.
The Thrift Shop is still providing care packages and vouchers to storm victims, as well as running a 50 percent off sale through Sunday.
The store can be reached at 941-212-4652 if you know someone in need of assistance.
During September, the joining fee will be waived for those who bring a nonperishable food item. Items collected will be donated to the Food Bank of Manatee.
