2017 Valuing Volunteer Awards – Now accepting nominations!

Volunteers are the heart of our organization. Their contributions enrich lives and make it possible to offer programs and services that otherwise would not exist. Please join us in honoring our volunteers!

 This year, the Y will recognize the many volunteers who devote their time and energy at the Y, as well as throughout the community. This year’s awards will be presented at the Peoria YMCA’s Awards Reception & Annual Meeting, to be at the Peoria YMCA on Saturday, May 27 at 9:00am

 Do you know someone who gave significant volunteer service to the Y or to the community in 2016?  Please nominate them for a recognition award!
