Y.E.S. Serve-a-thon 2016!

Every year, Y.E.S. volunteers gather on C​ésar Chá​vez Day (March 31st) to serve our local community in a big way, which also acts as an annual fundraiser to support our cause. Much like a Dance­-a-­thon the funds raised by Y.E.S. Serve­-a-­thon help to sustain our student-led volunteer programs. Past community organizations that have been served by this event include: Jefferson Community Center in Eureka, Miranda’s Animal Rescue in Fortuna, the Kikshari Trail in Eureka, and the Botanical Gardens at College of the Redwoods. This year approximately 150 of our volunteers will be dedicating their day in service to the Potawat Community Garden just off Spear Avenue in Arcata. Our service will be to assist in maintaining their garden and land. The Potawot Community garden serves the UIHS community by growing and distributing, “a wide range of fresh, organically grown produce”.
