How You Can Help?

pcc_logo2Hello!  If you are reading this you have shown an interest in volunteering for The Phelps Community Center.  I am Janie Burgess, the Executive Director for the center, and I am very excited to have this opportunity to present our needs to you and to have an opportunity to answer any questions you may have.


Donate Your Time to the Phelps Community Center

There are many opportunities at the center where you can help.  It does not have to be a huge time commitment to help us out.  We really just need 3 hours per month from several different people.  Maybe you are only available certain times of the year.  Any gift of time you can give us we would be very happy to receive.

Below are some examples of how you can help?

  • Help prepare for an upcoming event
  • Assist with Events
  • Assist in the garden
  • Painting
  • Serve on a Committee – Fundraising, Special Events, Buildings & Grounds, Business, Volunteer
  • Assist with a workshop that might need an extra set of hands
  • Decorate a bulletin board
  • Help supervise the building
  • Assist in the office
  • Assist with small cleaning tasks
  • Distribute posters/flyers around town
  • Perhaps you have a skill that you would be willing to share with us!

I will be more than happy to show you around the community center, have you meet our staff,  get to know you better and you us.  If you would like to set up a time to talk or visit, please contact me at or 315-548-8484.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you again for the interest you have shown and I hope you will soon be a part of our Volunteer Team.

Sincerely Yours,
Janie H. Burgess


Give A Donation To The Phelps Community Center:

The Phelps Community Center is at the heart of our community and we need your support!

The Phelps Community Center enriches the lives of so many people in our community. As a non-profit organization, the programs and facility that we provide is made possible by the generous support of community members and businesses. Without the assistance of community minded individuals and businesses like you, we wouldn’t be able to serve on average 2300 people per week in our community.  We currently do not receive financial support from your tax dollars.

This past year we were able to bring several new programs, new equipment, added more staff, and events to our center.  To name a few, we had a fantastic Youth Garden Program, started a Youth Volleyball Program, had more diverse Community Education classes, and purchased new items for our fitness center and school age rooms.  We also added additional security.   Some of our events consisted of theater from Merry Go Round Playhouse, Phelps Phenomenal Race, and Family Fun Day.

In 2012 we plan to focus on providing more fitness equipment and programs including Indoor Cycling, a Senior Fitness Program, Youth Sports Programs and Clinics, a newer more efficient phone system, additional staffing and volunteers, more events and community education that are low or no cost, and continue with cosmetic upgrades in the fitness center and school age program to name a few.

Most of the above is not possible without your help.  Please make the commitment to support the Phelps Community Center.  We have made it even easier to make a donation.  You can now charge your donation with a credit card for a one time payment or set up a recurring monthly payment with your credit card.

Every donation makes a difference, regardless of size. Thank you in advance for your commitment to support the efforts of The Phelps Community Center in continuing to make a difference in our community.


Thank you for helping to support the Phelps Community Center!
