The Y is a charitable mission-driven organization dedicated to making our community a better place for all. Volunteers are necessary to this cause and to the cause of a healthy community and the act of volunteering is often as rewarding for you as it is for those you are helping. Each year several thousand people pitch in and volunteer with the Y. Join us!
Here are some ways to make a difference in your community no matter how much time you have to give.
- “Like” and “share” our content you think could be helpful to your friends and family
- Pick up a piece of trash you see on the street
- Hold the door for someone on your way into or out of a building
A Day, A Week

- Make welcome packets for those new to the Y
- Volunteer at one of our special events like the annual Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K

A Bit Longer, Maybe Even a Year
