David N. and Andrew


The Van Buren Center's shelter ( is not allowing meal serving volunteering at this time. Our group will be doing other tasks on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Please watch the volunteer training video at . Note that since this is a group volunteering event, you do not need to do the background check, orientation, or sign up on Sign-Up Genius. What you need to do is watch the video, sign up here, and provide Andrew with your first and last name if they are not in your username. The shelter needs a list of volunteer names before the event. You can provide your name by sending Andrew a message on this site, emailing, or texting him (see below).

Since we will be working around families, the YMCA does not permit volunteering by individuals with convictions for violent or sexual crimes. The YMCA reserves the right to run background checks on volunteers.

For questions, comment on this page or contact: Andrew,, (614)937-5802 (cell) or Dave Nohle,, (614)268-9558 (cell). Please let Andrew know if you volunteer anytime other than our COUNT events so that he can count your hours toward our service record.
