The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) selected YWCA St. Paul as the recipient of the 2021 Nonprofit Mission Award in the category of Anti-Racism Initiative.
YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. For more than 20 years, we have set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence—a week to raise awareness and engage action to end the broad spectrum of violence—as part of a global movement with World YWCA to end violence against women and girls. This year, we invite you to join us from October 18–23 for this year’s campaign.
Thank you to 3M Legal Affairs for supporting YWCA St. Paul during your Day of Service. In October, 3M volunteers donated items, assembled them into birthday party bags and dropped the finished bags off at our Health & Fitness Center. The shiny colorful bags are packed with festive birthday party supplies and will make birthdays more special for our families.
As a community-oriented professional, Cassandra Yarbrough’s board service is one way she could meaningfully give back and make a real difference.
Are you fully vaccinated? If you haven’t already gotten your shot, you can be vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine at the YWCA St. Paul Health & Fitness Center (HFC). Clinicians from Community Clinics will be administering the Pfizer (2 dose) vaccine on September 17 between 5-7 p.m. (first and second dose).
YWCA St. Paul thanks Xcel Energy for partnering with us again during their annual Day of Service. On September 10, an Xcel Energy team volunteered their time to transform the yard and playground at our Grotto property. We appreciate their time and hard work.
