QUARTZ HILL— Local water provider California Water Service Company on Wednesday donated $10,000 each to the Antelope Valley Boys & Girls Club, the Antelope Valley YMCA, and the Leona Valley Improvement Association.
The contribution is part of the company’s continuing effort to improve the quality of life in the communities it serves, according to company officials.
Charitable contributions do not come from water rates, but from the company’s shareholders, according to Local Manager Chris Whitley.
“It is important to us to be a good corporate citizen and support organizations that make this a better place to live. Our shareholders know that this means investing in worthwhile organizations like these,” Whitley said.
The Antelope Valley Boys & Girls Club is committed to helping local youth reach their full potential; the Antelope Valley YMCA promotes healthy living and social responsibility; and the Leona Valley Improvement Association encourages family activities in rural Leona Valley.
Cal Water serves about 3,400 people through 1,400 service connections in the Antelope Valley area. The company has provided water service in the area since 2000. For more information of Cal Water, visit www.calwater.com.
