Pandemic impacts revenue, services at YMCA of Greater Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Between COVID-19 cases and the county directive, the YMCA of Greater Charlotte is seeing a drastic cut in revenue.

More than half of members have either canceled or frozen their memberships since the start of the pandemic.

That’s cost the organization about $40 million in lost revenue so far. The YMCA is still offering virtual and some outdoor options.
