Volunteering During COVID-19
2020 proved to be a challenging year as the majority of our events were canceled due to local COVID-19 ordinances but we are determined to continue to raise much-needed funds to help continue our programs.
In 2022, we will continue practicing recommended COVID-19 safety guidelines and to put the safety of our volunteers, donors, and staff as a priority. We hope that you can join us in person at an event but understand if you wish to help in other ways.

Our first volunteer spotlight in 2022, is a mother and daughter dynamic duo. Valerie Belyeu and her daughter Chasity Coquat have been volunteering with SA YES since November 2018 at the inaugural Celebrity Fan Fest, their highlight was not only meeting new friends but also meeting Ben Affleck.
Valerie and Chasity have volunteered at multiple events benefiting SA YES including several Celebrity Fan Fest events, several Texas Hold’em Charity Poker tournaments, and Taste of Education Dinner. They have even gone as far as volunteering for events on the same day!
When Valerie and Chasity are not volunteering, they enjoy spending time with family and friends going to Six Flags, Sea World, thrift shopping, concerts and competing in pageants.
