L.A. Youth to Remain Open Through the Summer

What a birthday for L.A. Youth executive director Donna Myrow.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the teen newspaper has raised more than $180,000, which is enough money to publish their next issue and remain open through the summer.

We told you last month the non-profit needed to raise $500,000 by May 14 or it would be forced to close their doors after 24 years on June 30. Thanks to an anonymous donation of $150,000 Friday, it gives Myrow more time to fundraise.

For more information about donating, check out LAYouth.com/Donate.
