VOLUNTEERING AND GIVING

COVID-19 Response Fund

Dear Valued Y Community,

These are indeed difficult times for everyone in the community. Many have been impacted by the recent efforts of the nation to slow the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Our community has been extremely supportive of the YMCA and its mission. Your continued support is crucial to our efforts to work with the community to provide services throughout the community.

The recent mandate to temporarily close our facility has not slowed our continued service of the community. We are continuing to reach out into the community to fill gaps that have been created in the recent days. This is the charge of YMCAs across the country and we are no different.

Today, more than ever, the Y is demonstrating that it is more than a fitness facility and you are more than just a member/donor!

Now, more than ever in the over 51 years of your Y, is it clear that your membership/donations are going directly to aiding your community! The Fergus Falls YMCA is partnering with state and local community leaders to provide the following:

  • Collectively partnering with the State of Minnesota and other Ys to provide childcare
  • Ensure there is adequate childcare for employees who work in essential services that meet the COVID guidelines
  • Coordination with local leaders to address food insecurities
  • Coordinating and partnering with local organizations to broaden outreach services

We are reaching out to you to ask you to continue to partner with us so we can continue to work on relieving the burden the community is facing. This cannot happen without your support. Please recognize the significant impact of what your membership/donation truly does for this community.

We’re asking you to continue to support us on our mission. Our doors may have been forced to temporarily close but our work and our mission has not. Please continue to stay with us as we continue to invest in our community. Keeping your membership active is crucial during this difficult time.

If you are able, #StayWithUs and keep your membership active. By doing so, you are helping us serve the community by doing what we do best.

Volunteer Opportunities:

There are always opportunities to Volunteer at the YMCA. No matter what your talents or interests there
is a place for you to volunteer and help out your YMCA!

Volunteering is a great asset to our Y! Community support in helping with things like painting, yard work, youth coaching, chaperoning youth events, committees, and our Board of Directors are ways to volunteer at our Y. Volunteers do need to apply, as we do conduct background checks on all individuals working in and around our facility and with our programs. Stop in, call or email for more information!
