YMCA IN GREENFIELD
Committed Members Serve as Y Ambassadors & Volunteers
Our Y improves the lives of thousands of Franklin County kids, adults and seniors every year. We are grateful to our dedicated members who serve as Ambassadors and/or Volunteers to help us fulfill our mission.
Volunteers - Help our Y offer new programs or help with existing programs, tasks and special events. If you can serve in similar ways, we always need help with Youth Sports, bulk mailings, mentoring, events, our Strong Kids Campaign, and classes. We’d also love to know if you have an idea where you could offer your talent. If you’re interested in adding this new dimension to your life, please contact the Welcome Center.
Y Ambassadors - Provide their time and talent to assist others in feeling welcome at our facility and among our Y family. We have groomed these dedicated members to serve as representatives modeling the lifestyle we promote and reinforcing support for new members while they’re becoming familiar with our facilities and programs. An Ambassador can also simply be a companion to learn from and befriend.
Members interested in becoming a YMCA Ambassador can contact Jayne Trosin at 773-3646, ext. 448.
Community Service at our Y Ways you can give back to our community.
Strong Kids & Families Campaign
Each year our primary fundraiser is the Strong Kids & Families Campaign, which raises funds to subsidize youth and family programs and provide financial assistance so all families may participate in Y programs. Our goal is to turn no one away from joining our Y. Take part in this incredible team effort by donating or volunteering time in the spring in our Phone-a-Thon or visiting potential donors. We want to continue to assist children and families who otherwise cannot participate in our programs. If you’d like to help, call Tina Newton at 773-3646 Ext. 411.
Community-wide Service Activities Our Y, our members and staff actively serve Franklin County in ways that improve, strengthen and better the lives of those in need. We have a Food Drop Program at our facility and we help host “Community Meals” that help feed hundreds of Franklin County families. Our members and staff participate in the annual Relay for Life, sponsor and work in partnership with other community entities to help kids go to camp and receive needed school supplies, and we also participate in other programs with the United Way of Franklin County, Baystate/Franklin Medical Center, local school and other organizations. Ask at the Welcome Center how you can participate and make a difference.
In the last eight years, our annual “Kids to Camp” Golf Tournament has raised over $100,000 specifically to provide kids of low and middle-income families with the opportunity to attend the Y’s summer day camps. You can get involved independently, as a volunteer, or with your business
by sponsoring, playing, or attending the auction. This event is just one more way the Y is working to help all kids receive the benefits of Y camps.
The Heritage Club:
Leave a Legacy
The Heritage Club is a special group of individuals who believe in the Y and want to ensure that its valuable character-building programs/services continue through new generations. Club members have included the Y in their estate plans by will, insurance or by giving a gift outright. A unique aspect of Heritage Club membership is that your gift can be deferred. Listing the YMCA in Greenfield as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy qualifies you as a member. Each fall the Club meets for a social/dinner and informational session to recognize members. As more people join this fellowship, the Y builds long-term financial stability that enables us to meet our mission.
