Whittier YMCA is recipient of $5,000 grant
WHITTIER — The YMCA of Greater Whittier was the recipient of a $5,000 grant through AT&T’s “Investing in California” program, which provides resources to organizations and programs that are improving lives in their communities by advancing education, economic growth, new technologies, and other essential community services.
Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon recommended the Whittier YMCA for the award.
“We are fortunate to be a recipient of the award from AT&T and grateful for the support of the Assembly Majority Leader’s office,” said Curt Skotnicki, president and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Whittier. “This grant will increase accessibility of our early learning and aquatics programs in the community.”
In addition to Calderon, Whittier Councilman Henry Bouchot, YMCA board chair Berta Leon and board secretary Wayne Campfield were in attendance for the check presentation from AT&T representative Amir Johnson.
The group then toured the Y’s early learning childcare classrooms and Stride day program for adults with intellectual disabilities.
