WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmers Insurance® today presented the Armed Services YMCA San Diego (ASYMCA San Diego) with a donation for $20,000 to the Camp Hero Program.  This 13-week summer camp provides free or low-cost youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility programs for junior enlisted military and their families to make military life easier.

In addition to the donation, more than 50 Farmers volunteers joined staff from the ASYMCA San Diego, active duty volunteers and community members for the monthly Neighborhood Exchange food drive that provides low-income military families in need with an opportunity to stock their cupboards with groceries.

"As one of the nation's top military-friendly employers, we understand giving back to our military men and women is important," said Keith Daly, chief claims officer for Farmers Insurance. "Working with the Armed Services YMCA San Diego allowed Farmers to do something special for military families, which makes up such a significant portion of the local community."  

Founded in 1920 as a national affiliate of the YMCA, the ASYMCA San Diego's mission is to enhance the lives of service members and their families in mind, body, and spirit. Through programs and services that are relevant to the unique challenges of military life, the ASYMCA San Diego's strengthens the military community.

"We like to say that the Farmers Insurance Open is about much more than golf," said Daly. "Our work with the ASYMCA San Diego is an example of how the tournament allows us to give back to the San Diego community."
