YMCA Receives Grant from Barry Bonds Family Foundation to Support Children and Families

March 6, 2013

Contact: Lee Pfab 650-842-7164, lpfab@ymcasv.org

The Lewis and Joan Platt East Palo Alto Family YMCA is pleased to announce that it has received a $10,000 grant from the Barry Bonds Family Foundation to help provide financial assistance for families to be active and healthy together at the Y.

With 90 percent of YMCA families in the East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park communities receiving financial assistance to benefit from the Y’s programs and services, the nonprofit says the grant will help extend its reach to positively impact lives and strengthen community.

“We are truly grateful to the Barry Bonds Family Foundation for their generous donation supporting our focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility,” said Lee Pfab, Interim Executive Director at the East Palo Alto Y. “For years, we’ve been listening and responding to critical needs in this community, and the foundation’s support enables us to continue to nurture people of all ages in spirit, mind and body.”

Since 1993, the Barry Bonds Family Foundation has encouraged, promoted and funded programs designed to improve the educational achievements, standard of living and quality of life conditions for African-American youth in the Bay Area.

“Our two organizations share a combined vision—that young people in our communities can live healthier, happier, more enriched lives through the combined efforts of individuals and organizations coming together to help youth envision and achieve their full potential,” said Barry Bonds. “We’re proud to continue our support of the Y in their efforts to help children, adults and families thrive.”

Through youth and family programs, the Y creates opportunities for year-round enrichment and learning, increased physical activity to combat obesity, prevention and recovery from chronic disease and injury, nutrition education, and connecting with others.

To learn more, contact the Y at 650- 842-7164.
