The BarberaCares Program has been a supporter of the Roxborough YMCA for 30 years when Gary Barbera opened his first dealership on Ridge Avenue in beautiful Roxborough. He and his brother Gene were quick to join the Roxborough YMCA board. Our families are members. Barbera's on the Boulevard is located in Northeast Philadelphia close to the Northeast Family Y. Both YMCA's are much-loved community organizations that are vital, safe, fun locations for the community to participate and interact in a healthy supportive environment.
