Farmers Insurance Commits $500K to Support Local Military Families

As part of the 14th annual Farmers Insurance Open taking place this week at Torrey Pines, Farmers announced Thursday that it will donate the first $100,000 installment of a five-year, $500,000 pledge to benefit and support the Armed Services YMCA of San Diego.

The formal announcement will be made at 9:30 this morning during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Armed Services YMCA, located at 3293 Santo Road.

Farmers Insurance is celebrating San Diego’s military community as part of the Farmers Insurance Open golf championship. Farmers will begin the day by presenting ASYMCA San Diego with a $100,000 donation as the first installment of a five-year, $500,000 commitment to help the organization build a new facility in Murphy Canyon that will serve military families for years to come.

Farmers volunteers will then participate in ASYMCA’s monthly Neighborhood Food Exchange event to give back and provide food and supplies to active-duty military and their families.

Farmers Insurance nonprofit partner Operation BBQ Relief will also be onsite, preparing hot meals for dozens of military families and Farmers volunteers throughout the morning’s activities.

Founded in 1920, the Armed Services YMCA of San Diego provides innovative and quality social, educational and recreational programs to meet the needs of military service members and their families. The ASYMCA is committed to promoting its goals of strengthening military families, supporting healthy lifestyles, reducing isolation and assisting service members and their families in connecting to their community.

Company officials said in a statement that the Farmers Insurance Open is about “much more than golf. As part of the charitable focus of the Farmers Insurance Open, the tournament is committed to supporting the Armed Services YMCA San Diego and the larger Southern California military community through its Together on the Tee platform.”
