Expanding the YMCA Daycare will provide a single-location daycare solution for families with children of multiple ages, thereby alleviating scheduling difficulties for families in the community. This investment will facilitate the opening an additional 50 daycare slots for children from 0 to 3 years old. Of the 50 total slots, 40 will be reserved for Swift Prepared Foods and JBS USA team members. It also provides discounted daycare and YMCA membership rates for Swift Prepared Foods and JBS USA team members for a period of two years.

Partner: Ottumwa Family YMCA

Target Completion Date: 2021-2022: 12-18 months

The investment by JBS and Plumrose in the Ottumwa community is outstanding. They have been great corporate partners even before the pandemic arrived. I have been impressed with the mitigation efforts against Covid-19 for the safety of their employees and families. This Hometown Strong investment demonstrates their commitment to their families and the community, making Ottumwa a great place to live, work and recreate.
