Days of Service

Our hunger relief efforts have grown leaps and bounds in the last year and a half. They will continue as long as there is a need among our neighbors and community members.

You can help us provide hunger relief in our community. Be involved with us.

Join us for our November 2021 Days of Service!

Engage along side us to help our community. Together we can make a difference.

Donate! Make an on-line donation to support this vital work so that the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA can help serve those in our community who needs us most. Our goal is to raise at least $2,021 during our November Days of Service. Every dollar counts! Or consider a food donation to support one of several YMCA events.

Volunteer! Get involved and work beside us with other community supporters. We could use your help with our events! Volunteer groups welcome! Our goal is to have 21 volunteers work beside at least 21 Y staff members to help feed 202 new families.
