In 2016, the Burbank YMCA Service Club donated a 12 passenger van to the Burbank Y for use in its Child Development Programs. It was the fourth van donated by the club in as many years and completes the Child Development Center’s transportation fleet. These vans are used to pick up children from Burbank schools and bring them to after-school activities at the Y. During the summer, the vans are often used to transport children, youth counselors or supplies to activities and field trips.
