The YMCA of Snohomish County recently honored five Mukilteo volunteers for their outstanding community service.

The Y held a special recognition breakfast June 10 at the Everett Golf & Country Club to honor the contribution of more than 33 volunteers during 2014-2015 who support the YMCA of Snohomish County.

The following from the Mukilteo Family YMCA were recognized as Volunteers of the Year: Jerry Fraser, program volunteer; Ali Williams, policy volunteer; Jose Sanchez-Rangel, youth volunteer; and Tom Gaskin, financial development volunteer.

In addition, Christopher Rabideau, of Mukilteo, was honored for his contributions as a youth volunteer to Big Brother Big Sister of Snohomish County.

“Behind each individual we are honoring here today there is an army of volunteers,” said Scott Forslund, trustee board chair of the YMCA of Snohomish County.

“They give their time, resources, and talents – every day in thousands of ways – because they know they can improve the lives of others while enhancing their own lives through the Y.”

These five represent the best of more than 1,947 committed volunteers who served a total of 35,673 hours of community service.

Policy volunteers lead various boards and committees, while campaign volunteers lead annual fundraising efforts. Program and youth volunteers serve in such activities as youth sports, teen programs, mentoring activities, child care and special events.

The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
