Alligator Pond needs love!  And we're doing something about it!  Join us on Sunday, July 12th as we join with friends and aspiring leaders to make a little difference in our community.  One pond at a time.

Alligator Pond collects all the rainwater runoff at the Finley YMCA from the parking lots, rooftops and ball fields.  Along with the rainwater, Alligator Pond also collects all the litter and playground balls, too. 

Here's the thing... Alligator Pond is a hero.  You see, the buck stops right here at Alligator Pond.  That right.  If it weren't for this little pond, all that trash, soccer balls and sediment would flow right into Falls Lake, the drinking water source for nearly 500,000 people in Raleigh, NC.

But, poor girl, she's looking a bit rough around the edges.  She's showing the wear and tear of many a rainy day.  So, we're turning the tide, rolling up our sleeves, and cleaning her up!  But we need your help.  We can't do it alone.  Here's how you can help.

1. DONATE: Help us reach our goal of $1,500!
2. SERVE: Join us on July 12th to get a little dirty and make a little difference.  
3. SHARE: Spread the word, we need all the help we can get.

Alligator Pond is looking better!  #woot!  Despite a low turn out, we hauled between 150 to 200 lbs. of trash, lumber, soccer balls and two deflated alligator pool toys out of Alligator Pond.  The fish, frogs, and herons will be loving the new and improved, cleaner Alligator Pond.  Special thanks to Whole Foods who generously donated snacks, water and ice for our volunteers!
