Join Us in giving back
At the Y, we’re dedicated to strengthening community by giving back and supporting our neighbors. And we know that you have lots of ideas and the desire to reach out to make positive changes in our community. That’s why we invite you to participate in Togetherhood™, our program that gives you the opportunity to be part of meaningful community service projects that benefit people and organizations in your neighborhood.
Togetherhood is a way for you to actively participate in the Y’s cause to strengthen community. Collecting school supplies, donating blood, or running a park cleanup are just some of the countless ways you and your friends and family can come together in service to your community.
- Meet people who are excited to better understand our community’s challenges and develop creative ways to meet them.
- Discover how personally rewarding it is to engage with others in improving community life.
- Experience a deeper sense of belonging to and responsibility for the place where you live.
