YMCA Alumni partners with the YMCA of the Seven Council Fires for National Service Project

YMCA Alumni members have raised more than $850,000 and several hundreds of volunteers traveled to Dupree, S.D., home of the YMCA of the Seven Council Fires to ready the land, build the foundations and continue building a YMCA Tiny Home Village of four homes on the property of the Y's small headquarters. The goal is to help alleviate some of the housing deficit on the reservation.

The volunteers, in addition, plan to build at least two "twigs" -- small Y branches in outlying communities on the vast reservation.
