Armed Services YMCA Chosen by Girlfriends Films Employee Dave as August Charity

Each month Girlfriends Films turns to one of its employees or performers to select a charity to sup- port. On behalf of Girlfriends Films employee Dave, the Armed Services YMCA will receive a check for $1,000 as the August Charity. The Armed Services YMCA is a top-rated military nonprofit de- signed to make military life easier on families.

“I am selecting this organization for two primary reasons,” states Dave. “First, their support of our military families, as it is the entire family that sacrifices when a loved one is called upon to assist in maintaining the safety many of us take for granted, and the freedoms allowing us to express our differing opinions. The second reason is because of its support of the needs of our troops’ children through its programs, as well as its collaborative efforts with Operation Homefront and other quality organizations.”

The Armed Services YMCA provides hands-on, innovative, specialized programs and support ser- vices to military service members and their families with a particular focus on junior-enlisted men and women — the individuals on the front lines of defending America. Programs are offered at no or low cost and require no dues or membership fees.

In 2013, the Girlfriends Films Charity Program donated over $20,000 to a wide array of philanthropic organizations, from medical institutes to animal sanctuaries. Charities supported in 2014 include Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Movember Foundation, Stand Up to Cancer, National Alliance to End Homelessness, and more.
