On Tuesday, Care.com -- a website that connects families with caregivers -- and the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) announced they are partnering to offer free child care while parents vote in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
“As a core part of our mission, we believe that access to child care should never prevent a parent from seeking employment, health care or in this case, participating in our National election,” the ASYMCA website said.
Free child care through the ASYMCA and Care.com program is available at more than 20 locations in 11 states: California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.
Though the program is available for all parents at most of the locations, child care at the Twentynine Palms, Calif., location is available only for military families, Care.com told FOX Business in an email.
To get free child care, parents should go to the program website or call the individual locations to reserve a four-hour spot in advance.
On Nov. 3, parents can drop off their kids for their allotted time, while they go vote at their local polling station.
According to Care.com, each location can take a maximum of only 20 children and all locations will be “fully COVID-19 compliant.”
Here is the full list of participating locations by state, according to the ASYMCA website.
