Give Back and Take Action


Every June, volunteers from all over the Roanoke Valley region join people worldwide for a day of collective action. It's a time when we ask you to help us put our mission into action by volunteering to improve the building blocks for a good quality of life – education, financial stability and health.

This year local artist, Bryce Cobbs has been commissioned to work with youth from Lucy Addison and James Madison Middle Schools to paint a mural on the front of the YMCA facing Orange Ave. this summer. In addition to assisting the YMCA with completing much needed projects that will enhance their patrons health & wellness experience, Day of Action volunteers are playing an integral role in preparing the building for the mural installation and working on other beautification projects. We are excited to recognize and honor the full & rich history of the Gainsboro community by being of service to The Gainsboro YMCA during Day of Action 2024.

Activities that volunteers will be helping with include:

  • Mulching, weeding, planting flowers, clearing brush and sprucing up lawn areas
  • Gainsboro neighborhood clean-up
  • Cleaning community bbq area beside YMCA
  • Interior/Exterior painting
  • Internal cleaning

Project times will range from 1-2 hours and two shifts will be available. Space is limited.
