The San Luis Obispo County YMCA recently received a generous donation of $25,000 from The Shanbrom Family Foundation to support the Y’s new REACH program (Realistic Education Addressing
Conditioning & Health) for youth and families impacted by autism.
The goal of REACH is to empower those on the ASD spectrum with independent living and social skills, physical activity and fun. The classes are held Saturday afternoons at the Y’s
facility on Southwood Drive. A "school dance" class will soon be added. The Shanbrom Family Foundation grant also supports financial assistance for ASD families to join the Y in order to
access all of the Y’s fitness membership benefits, which include full gym, racquetball, swimming and 54 classes per week. No family left behind.
For more information about the Y and REACH, go to www.sloymca.org or call the Y: (805) 543-8235. For information about The Shanbrom Family Foundation, please contact Bob
Shanbrom and Xiaoping Cheng at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your contribution of $1,200 (or more) sets you among the YMCA’s leaders. Through the President's Club, your gift will be used to provide financial assistance and inspire bigger and
brighter achievements in our community.
The YMCA is in need of many products and services. If you have something to share, please give us a call. If we can't use it, we'll work with other agencies to ensure it's put to
