Volunteer as a Family on Nov 23!


Calling all Families!

Families can Make a Difference Today for a Stronger Tomorrow!

On Saturday, November 23 from 9-11am, the Shasta Family YMCA would like to invite you to bring your donations and help organize and sort supplies and non-perishable foods as part of our Youth Programs Food & Supply Drive to benefit Y Club Afterschool Program for tweens and teens, our ESYAC partnership working with housing insecure youth, and our Child Watch and after school programs for ages 6 weeks to 12 years.

Supplies needed include paper plates and bowls, paper towels, napkins, plastic cutlery, and Ziploc gallon-size bags. Non-perishable foods needed include canned fruits and vegetables, juice boxes, snack packs, granola bars, fruit snacks, dessert items, and other non-perishables that can contribute towards a group meal or healthy snack.

It takes a village to raise strong, resilient children and build a strong community! When you support the Shasta Family YMCA, your contribution helps young people achieve their potential.

RSVP to Liz Crain at lcrain@sfymca.org or call 246-9622.

ESYAC Volunteers Needed


Eagle Soar Youth Activities Center (ESYAC) is in need of volunteers for their Homework Club.  There is a waiting list of youth waiting to get into the program. Without more volunteers, the program cannot accomodate more youth.  Volunteers are needed in the following ways: 

Drivers: Transporting kids on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2 - 3 p.m (school to Homework Club) and then 4:45 - 5:15 p.m. (Homework Club to home.)
Cooks:  Prepare meals at Homework Club on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1 - 3 p.m. ESYAC serves a hot meal every time they meet. Food will be provided. 
Tutors: To help at Homework Club on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3 - 5 p.m. 

If you would like to get involved please contact Patti Brent at 530.241.5562 or contact Helen at the Y at 246-YMCA.

ESYAC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide at-risk children and their families the support to succeed and the opportunity to believe through programs of tutoring, mentoring, and adventuring.  This program makes such a huge impact on the lives of the children they serve, and, no doubt, changing your own life in the process.

There are several motels in Redding where families live and struggle to raise their children. At most of these locations there are no parks or after school programs within walking distance and the children have only the parking lot in which to play. Their lives are affected by substance abuse, transiency and unemployment. A volunteer staff of teachers, college and high school students, and retirees run an after school and summer program in collaboration with community agencies, private individuals, businesses and churches.  The Y is one of these organizations that partners with ESYAC by providing Y memberships, physical movement and skill building, and Saturday lunch and activities.
