Help YNDC in Your Own Way!

Thank you so much for your interest in the YNDC!   There are many ways you can get involved and contribute to our projects.  While we can always use monetary donations, there are many ways you can help us, and get a tax deduction!

We run frequent volunteer workdays and special events – we need help cutting grass, boarding homes, building gardens, and doing community outreach.  If you have time to give and want to have fun and get to know other city residents, we can find a place for you.

We use donated materials in our projects – these save us money and can put things you have to good use! 
Things that we need:

  • Good quality/ clean lumber for raised beds, home repair projects, and boardups
  • Exterior acrylic paint – new or mistinted cans, not frozen, all colors
  • Tools – construction and farm/garden
  • Full sheets of OSB/plywood for house boarding
  • Manure, wood chips, or straw bales for gardens
  • A used but reliable truck or van
  • Safety supplies
  • Gloves and trash bags

Professional Services
We can find a use for just about any professional skill that you are willing to donate.   We could use help with construction (both hands-on and consulting), art and design (mural painting), educational programming (especially for children), agricultural and farming knowledge…

Please contact us if you or your business have any services you would like to donate.
