Our Great Programs!
To all GYMC volunteers – THANK YOU! Although National Volunteer Week has past, we want you to know - your gift of volunteering has a direct effect on the work we do here at the GYMC, and ripples out into our entire community and well beyond. In return, we have only smiles and gratitude to give you – and that we give freely and abundantly!
"We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude." ~Cynthia Ozicki
