Fremont Bank Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Fremont Bank, recently awarded The Taylor Family Foundation (TTFF) an $18,500 grant to refurbish the infirmary at Camp Arroyo in Livermore Valley. TTFF unveiled the completed facility today during a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by staff, Fremont Bank Foundation, East Bay Regional Park District, YMCA of the East Bay and members of the community.
"Our partnership with Fremont Bank Foundation is making a difference in the lives of the courageous children we're privileged to serve," said Angie Carmignani, TTFF's executive director. "The new infirmary will enhance the level of care we can provide during camp, giving parents peace of mind and ensuring children have the best experience possible."
The foundation operates Camp Arroyo, providing a once-in-a-lifetime camp experience for nearly 3,000 children each year at no cost to their families. The camp's infirmary is one of the most critical facilities onsite to ensure participating children receive proper care.
The grant provided by Fremont Bank Foundation was used to replace the infirmary's floor, update medical desks, install wireless capability, and provide a warm and welcoming space for children. TTFF has served approximately 40,000 children since 1990.
