Forever In Service

In honor of Earth Day on April 22 the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA will demonstrate our support for environmental protection. Our hope is to celebrate the importance of taking care of nature and beautifying our community. Events will be held throughout our service area Saturday, April 17 – Friday, April 23. Each event will be an opportunity for you to volunteer alongside us, give back to our community and donate. Let’s come together and demonstrate our commitment to each other.

You can help us build a better us. Be involved with us.

Join us for our Days of Service.

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

Volunteer! Get involved and work beside us with other community supporters. Sign up to volunteer for a safe, socially distanced volunteer shift at one of many events. We hope to have a YMCA presence at each! Volunteer groups welcome! Our goal is to have 22 new volunteers work beside our 22 Y staff members to collect over 22 bags of trash.

Give Back! We hope to spend 220 hours beautifying our community. Can you give us a little of your time and energy?

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 $2,200 during our April Days of Service. Every dollar counts!
