UKIAH, CA (October 24, 2014) — Redwood Credit Union (RCU) recently donated a projector and automatic screen to the Arbor Youth Resource Center in Ukiah to help them with educational and recreational programs for transition-age youth.

“RCU’s generous gift greatly improves the Arbor’s ability to offer trainings, presentations and the always-popular Inspirational Movie Night,” said Stephanie Paige, Program Manager for the Center. “Developing and maintaining community relationships is what makes the programs at The Arbor possible; donations like this projector help keep this center not only a safe place for teens, but also a fun one.”
