Chiquita Canyon Proudly Supports SCV YMCA’s Heart of the Community Gala

Posted on:

Chiquita Canyon is proud to support the 2nd annual YMCA Heart of the Community Gala honoring the late Dana Cop being held tomorrow.

The evening honors the mission of the Y with the prestigious John Fuller Award, which is given to an individual recognized as a business, non-profit and government leader in the Santa Clarita Valley community. Proceeds from the event will provide direct financial assistance to children and families in need so they can enjoy a healthy lifestyle and affordable childcare.

This year’s honoree Dana Cop served on the YMCA Board of Managers and was also a leader in the community whose work created positive change for thousands of Santa Clarita residents.



SCVNEWS – Nov. 3: Val Verde Residents Elect Benefits Committee Members

Posted on:

The Val Verde Community Benefits Funding Committee will hold its annual election Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Val Verde Park poolhouse, 30300 Arlington St.

It’s the same time and place as the regular general election, but unlike the other election, a valid California I.D. is required to vote for Community Benefits Funding Committee members. Voters must be 18.

Five candidates are vying to fill three vacancies on the committee, which was created in 1997 to determine and oversee the use of funds provided by the landfill operator (then Laidlaw, now Chiquita Canyon) under the terms of a 1997 agreement.

Today the amount is approximately $350,000 per year, which the Community Benefits Funding Committee allocates to after-school and other programs for local residents.
