The Santa Anita Family YMCA, which serves Arcadia residents, will launch its annual fundraising campaign this week in an effort to raise $80,000 for the organization.
The Community Support Campaign kicks off Thursday and is geared toward raising money for fighting obesity and diabetes, improving student
success and civic engagement and support for families.
"Through our community support campaign, we want to educate people that we are more than a place to go to exercise or swim, but an organization that does vital work thanks to the support of the community," said Damon Colaluca, Executive Director of the Santa Anita Family YMCA, in a written statement. "The Y contributes to improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods through a variety of ways that benefit all of us who live and work in the San Gabriel Valley."
To participate in the campaign, the YMCA asks residents to contact development director Cheryl Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
