Grace Maniglia volunteered at the Y 2-3 times a week from Thanksgiving to Christmas. She jumped right in and got involved with the kids, helped them choose new activities, played games and led crafts. Grace was very professional and did a great job.
Why did you decide to volunteer at the YMCA?
I initially volunteered at the Y because I am in the National Honor Society. I chose the Y because it seemed like it would be the most fun and friendly place to volunteer. Some of my friends who had volunteered at the Y before told me how much fun it was, and I’m glad I listened, because I’ve really enjoyed my time there.
What is your most memorable volunteer experience?
My most memorable volunteer experience was around my third week of volunteering, when a little girl recognized me from the weeks before. She wanted to continue the game of Uno we had started last time, because she had so much fun when we played it the first time.
