Thank you, Y Volunteers, for 12,000 Hours of Giving

The Westport Weston Family Y wishes to thank the volunteers who help us carry out our mission to develop and nurture youth, promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility in our community.

As important as monetary donations are to the success of our charitable nonprofit organization, a donation of time is priceless. Our volunteers give their time, talent, and heart to help our Family Y serve the community.

In 2011, 174 volunteers contributed a total of 7,805 volunteer hours. The Water Rats volunteers were 139 strong and logged 4,533 hours on their own. In all, that’s 514 days of giving 24/7 to our community.

Special thanks to Jim Marpe and Bonnie Strittmatter, who lead our volunteer Boards of Directors and Trustees, and to the Water Rat Parents’ Club.

We couldn’t do it without all of you.
