We have been able to assist many charities, including Fostering Hope, the local animal shelters, SPCA, Volunteer Way, local nursing homes and care facilities, Sand Soldiers, Toys for Tots and PACE Center for Girls. Our 2020 service project was a donation of $950. to the St. Vincent de Paul food bank. With our contribution, the charity was able to distribute food to local families in need during the Pandemic. The efforts of our Anchorettes makes much of this possible.
The Annual Children’s Christmas Party is another way GHYC gives back to the community. Area children are invited to join us for a Saturday lunch and meet Santa party, where carols are sung and Santa arrives by boat with presents for all.
GHYC is also a Toys for Tots collection site. Historically, our members’ generosity has filled more than 4 overflowing boxes with toys and bicycles to support this important effort.
