New! Essential Workers ABCs book

Toddlers playing with sand toys

This book was written by a YMCA Child Care team member, Michele Bugeja, a Registered Early Childhood Educator, and illustrated by her talented 16-year-old daughter, Liliana Di Leo, a YMCA volunteer. A colorfully illustrated 32-paged board book, celebrating and highlighting 26 essential workers found in our communities.

"I thought about my coworkers at the YMCA and how hard they were working. I wanted to show my appreciation for them and all essential workers who make our community a better place. That is why I created this book"

- Michele Bugeja

All proceeds collected from the sale will allow our charity to continue extending services to individuals and families in our community, helping them shine bright.
