YM Service Projects
Whether we are collecting money for the homeless, gathering items for elderly
in our community, heading to the local soup kitchen, or using our time and energy to support any number of people in our community and our world, we are sure to provide opportunities throughout the year for our young people to give back to the community and learn what it means to lead a life of service. The information below will tell you about what service opportunities we have coming during this year. See below for upcoming events; this will be updated as we add events for the school year.
