Y.E.S. volunteers provide community service to the people of West Seneca through direct interaction with children, senior citizens, and the emotionally and physically challenged. Y.E.S. serves as a support group to many agencies and organizations. Y.E.S. offers an abundance of helpful and worthwhile activities that benefit many individuals in the community.|
