Purpose and History of Y.E.S. Serve-a-Thon

In just one day student volunteers and Y.E.S. staff collectively contribute about 200-300 hours to the Potwaot Community Food Garden. Potawot Community Food Garden is part of the United Indian Health Services (UIHS) and volunteers support garden projects that provide healthy food access to UIHS clients.

Serve-A-Thon is the Y.E.S. annual fundraiser that helps our program continue to operate and thrive. 

Gifts to Y.E.S. (Youth Educational Services) touch many lives through our student-led volunteer programs offered in collaboration with local schools and community organizations. Y.E.S. programs are designed to meet local needs and provide our student volunteers with important teamwork and leadership experience.
