Y Service Clubs International US Area

Pacific Southwest Region

The Pacific Southwest Region is made up of twenty-three clubs, organized into five districts. The region covers the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.  Clubs support their local YMCAs and communities in a variety of ways. Many assist the Y by volunteering their time and leadership. They also raise funds in the annual YMCA financial campaign. Some stage fundraisers such as pancake breakfasts, fireworks sales, Christmas Tree sales, etc. These funds are used to help send Kids to Camp, to provide scholarships for those needing the services of the YMCA, and to assist the needy in their communities.  Read the quarterly Pacific Southwest Region Bulletin for additional information.
