The Youth Center receives Community Impact Grant from New York Life

The Youth Center in Los Alamitos, which transforms lives one family and child at a time, announced today that it was awarded a $5,000 Community Impact Grant from New York Life through local agent Jeffrey Blancq who represents the company’s Orange Coast General Office located in Irvine.

The grant will support their various programs including their After School Programs and Tutoring Program, Elementary Music Program, Camp SHARK and Teen Camp, Leadership Academy, and others which enrich local children’s lives through social, educational and recreational activities.

“We are grateful for New York Life’s investment in our organization, which will change many lives for the better,” said Youth Center Executive Director Lina Lumme. “Without the support from New York Life, we wouldn’t be able to keep growing our programs.”

“I’m proud to work for a company that encourages its agents and employees to devote their time, energy and talents to support the needs and priorities of their local community,” said New York Life agent Jeffrey Blancq, who also serves on The Youth Center’s Board of Directors. “We are pleased that our partnership will have a long-lasting impact on The Youth Center and the population they serve.”

The Community Impact Grant program awards grants of up to $25,000 to local nonprofit organizations which are championed by New York Life agents and employees to serve the needs of their local communities. Since the program’s inception in 2008, more than 500 grants totaling nearly $7 million have been awarded to nonprofits across the country.
