McPeeks’ Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Anaheim
Instilling values in youth has been a tradition at the Anaheim Family YMCA since our beginning. In 1999, a study citing growing crime rate increases between the hours of 3:00-6:00pm among children between the ages of 7-17 became the catalyst for the establishment of the Anaheim Achieves After school Enrichment Program.
On this 20th anniversary, the Anaheim Achieves program offers a safe place for 7,000 students to go each day after school. Rooted in character development, the Anaheim Family YMCA staff serves at 47 elementary, middle and high school sites by offering a consistent trustworthy presence, healthy snacks and dinner, homework assistance, academic and physical activity courses like video production, dance lessons, eSports, art and design. The Anaheim Achieves program offers that safe, supportive network of people, programs, and places to help them succeed.
Just before the holidays, McPeek’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Anaheim generously donated two Dodge minivans to the Anaheim Family YMCA. In addition, they also pledged $32,500 between now and December 2020.
“We believe strong partnerships make for strong communities. Our deepest gratitude to McPeek’s for making this investment in our community. As Anaheim’s largest youth non-profit, we instill the Y’s values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility through all we do”, said Rick Martens, CEO of the Anaheim Family YMCA. “Our youth are our future leaders, visionaries, and change-makers. We thank McPeek’s in joining us in our commitment to strengthening our community.”
Our intramural sports, field trips and mentorship opportunities move youth beyond the walls of the school. Thanks to the generosity of McPeek’s the youth who participate in these programs will have safe, reliable vehicles to transport them.
Stewart Benjamin, General Manager of McPeek’s said, “McPeek’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is a family business serving Anaheim since 1962. We are committed to family values and making a difference in our community.”
Over the next year as the Anaheim Family YMCA receives disbursements for programming from McPeek’s they will also be offering special offers for our Anaheim Family YMCA community.
