YMCA sends funds to center in Armenia

The YMCA of the Foothills is reaching across the world to boost the organization's message of fellowship and community.

The local Y, which has facilities in La Cañada Flintridge and Tujunga, recently provided $20,000 in locally raised funds for a YMCA in Spitak, Armenia.

YMCA of the Foothills President Tyler Wright went to Spitak to consult with YMCA leaders there. “The local Armenian population is one of the fastest growing groups in the communities we serve locally,” Wright said in a statement.

“Our desire is to be a diverse and inclusive voice in this community, making life-changing impact while also bridging any ethnic divides that may still exist. Our hope is to connect our local work with our global friends.”
