Y needs volunteers

The Family YMCA is seeking 50 volunteer scholarship campaigners for a 4-week fundraising drive that begins April 15. Annually the Y provides $120,000 in scholarships to 200-plus local community members so everyone may access healthy Y programs.
Volunteers will be trained on how to touch base with the Y’s regular 285 supporters, so each volunteer will contact 7 to 10 past supporters. As the Y holds numerous fundraising events, the goal of the Community Phase drive is to raise $40,000, and this drive will wrap up with a celebration on May 22.
Interested individuals are asked to call the Y and leave their name, number and email, and to show up at the Campaign Kickoff is at 5:30 p.m. April 15 at the Fusion Café, where training will be provided.
