puos-Y-famroom1Parents United of Salem has partnered with the Salem YMCA to help raise funds for an exciting new project to be completed this summer.

The $ 50-75k Community Family Resource Room will be a huge addition and asset to our Salem community! It will feature a Creative Art Therapy Station, Literacy Corner, Computer Lab, Discovery Sensory Station, Caregiver/Infant Lounge and continued after school programming.

It will also have an exciting new drop-in hourly fee-based babysitting service for parents to dine, shop, work or meet up in our downtown businesses! We are happy to support the YMCA after many years of collaborating with our organization and community.”


Our main event to fundraise for this new Family Resource Room is a Bollywood Dinner before the PEM’s popular Bollywood Dance Party.

On May 9th, from 7:00-9:00, the PEM has graciously offered East India Marine Hall for our Indian buffet catered by Passage to India. There will be live sitar music, bindis to go around, henna tattoos and Bollywood cocktails.

Then, 9:00-11:00 we’ll head over to the Atrium for some Bollywood night club dancing! Your tax deductible $50 ticket includes both the dinner and the dance party. Please click here for tickets or to donate to the YMCA towards this project. Hope to see you there! ”
