April 19, 2020 marks the start of national volunteer week. While most of our facilities are currently closed, the volunteer spirit is alive and well in our community. We are pleased to celebrate this essential service in its many forms.

Volunteers have been an integral part of the Y since we started. While many who contribute here tell us that they may get more than they receive, we know that the experience they help create for our members and those we support is a clear reflection of who we are. This is what community looks like.  Scroll through the list below to see who our volunteers are.

If you know them, thank them. If we have missed anyone here, please let us know and accept our gratitude for everything you do.
