Easterns Automotive Group and WUSA 9 are continuing to grow their Road to a Better Community segment. The pair recently gave back to the Latin American Youth Center in Washington D.C. This makes perfect sense because Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) has been selling cars to to the yard working men and women of DC, Maryland, and Virginia for over 30 years. It’s clear that Easterns has a very close relationship with the community. The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) is working to be more inclusive and provide a place for comfort to members of the LGBTQ community. Their goal is to bring teens of all walks of life together through after school activities and programs. They understand the pressures of the world and just aim to provide a place of unity for those growing up in the area. Youth are always looking for a comfortable place to engage and be themselves. Through the Stripes program, youths are able to learn about LGBTQ issues through media advocacy. They are able to learn just how powerful their voices are so one day they can become leaders themselves.
Joel Bassam of Easterns Automotive Group presented a check for $2,000 to Marie Moll, Teen Stripes Program Manager at the youth center. This money will help the nonprofit continue doing what they do for the youth in the community. If you would like to learn more about the Latin American Youth Center, please click here.
