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 Mariellen Hayre at 773-3646 ext. 440 or, firstname.lastname@example.org
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 Mariellen Hayre at 773-3646, ext. 415 or, email@example.com
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. Call Mariellen Hayre 773-3646 ext. 415 on how you can participate and make a difference.
“Kids to Camp” Golf Tournament
July 11th 2011
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.
