VHA receives $1,000 for exercise equipment



Vancouver — The Vancouver Housing Authority received $1,000 from Walmart, 2213 N.E. 194th Ave., to buy a flat-screen television and exercise equipment.

The items will be used to enhance the exercise program at Columbia House, a 150-unit apartment complex for low-income seniors in Uptown Village.

The grant was awarded through Walmart’s Local Communities Contribution program.

The Columbia House exercise program is designed to increase accessibility to fitness and encourage more physical activity among residents, said Steven Towell, VHA’s community relations program manager.
