NAPLES, Fla. - The Greater Naples YMCA welcomed back 63 children in their childcare program to campus this morning. The children had been going to daycare off-site since lightning struck the facility on Labor Day, causing a massive fire. The fire destroyed one third of the building and caused $2 million in damage.
The children will be taught in new, modular classrooms. They are gated and built with a new security system. But crews are still cleaning up from the fire. YMCA leaders are trying to raise $4 million to build a new state-of-the-art facility by next September and they're still $3.5 million short of their goal.
Walmart donated $10 thousand to help with the cost.
