North Suburban YMCA

Volunteer Opportunity of the Week!

Looking for a fun way to get involved? Consider helping out at Town Day in Winchester on Saturday, June 1st from 9AM-4PM.

Town Day is a community party that takes place each year in late spring. Thousands of individuals and families who attend get the chance to enjoy a day of browsing exhibits, playing games, competing in athletics, eating, listening to different types of music, attending the health fair, and watching the grand finale, fireworks!

The North Suburban YMCA is currently looking for 2 to 3 volunteers to help lead a children's activity at Town Day. If you are interested in volunteering for this, please contact Annie Medonis at amedonis@socialcapitalinc.org.

Volunteer Opportunity of the Week!

Take advantage of this beautiful spring weather by getting outside and volunteering at a local community garden! 

The North Suburban YMCA is looking for volunteers on Friday, May 17th anytime between 8:30AM-6:00PM to help plant and finish prepping garden boxes at their community garden!
Volunteers may stay as long as they would like. Whole Foods Market in Woburn will also be stopping by to help out.

SCI and the YMCA teamed up last summer during National Volunteer Week to kick start the "Giving Garden," but volunteers are still needed to help maintain it throughout the summer. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Annie Medonis at amedonis@ymcaboston.org.

Another option for volunteers looking to help out at a community garden is at the Woburn Food Pantry's community garden plot! Last year, the Council of Social Concern hosted it and tons of volunteers came out to help make it a smashing success. Now, they are looking for new helpers this year to tend to the garden!

Volunteers can help out with planting, weeding, watering and harvesting the garden. If you are interested in volunteering at the community garden, please contact the garden coordinator Clarinda Massengill at (978) 761-0795 or cm1665@comcast.net.
