Diablo Gymnastics School is very fortunate to have such a thriving gymnastics program and community. The coaches and staff at Diablo believe in the importance of giving back to help make the world a better place. In October 2016, we launched the “Diablo Cares” initiative. Every month, Diablo will highlight and support a special organization that is making a difference.
We are very excited about our “Diablo Cares” initiative and look forward to seeing all the good we can accomplish together.
Thank you to each and every family for making Diablo such an amazing community!
In February please help us celebrate American Heart Month. Hearts will be passed out in class and available in the office. For every decorated heart we receive we will donate $1 to the American Heart Association. Please see the February Newsletter for more information.
For the month of December, we would like to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots. We will be collecting toys from December 1st-17th.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children. In 2015, the Toys for Tots Program collected and distributed 18 million toys to 7 million children. This community action program took place in 782 communities covering all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
This year, Toys for Tots specifically needs:
• New unwrapped toys, games, and books for children of all ages (infants to teenagers)
We are very honored that our gymnastics’ families have embraced the Diablo Cares initiative by graciously supporting The Food Bank and The Children’s Book Project. We continue to look forward to seeing all the good we can accomplish together. Thank you to each and every family for your support and for making Diablo Gymnastics such an amazing community.
We are very honored that our Diablo Gymnastics School families have embraced the “Diablo Cares” initiative. For the month of November, we would like to support The Children’s Book Project.
The Children’s Book Project was founded to help build literacy by providing free, new and gently used books and other resources to shelters, community centers, schools, and homes of children who need them. Since 1992, The Children’s Book Project has given away over 2 million free books to hundreds of facilities and homes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Research has shown that children who have been read to at an early age have an easier time learning to read which helps with their brain development. However, many children in the Bay Area live in homes without books and attend schools and community programs where books are in short supply. Books can change a child’s life because literacy provides a lifetime of learning.
For the month of November, we will have collection bins located in the front office. The Children’s Book Project specifically needs:
We are very excited that our “Diablo Cares” initiative is making a difference and we continue to look forward to seeing all the good we can accomplish together. Thank you to each and every family for your support and for making Diablo such an amazing community.

October Charity: Contra Costa & Solano Food Bank
The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano distributes food directly to people in need. Can you imagine 1 in 8 of our neighbors go through their day with an empty stomach? Also, 1 in 4 people receiving emergency food are children. This reality makes it hard for people to complete every day tasks like focusing on work, concentrating at school, or taking care of one’s family. The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano donates 96 cents of every dollar to their food programs, and they provide food to more than 190,000 people every month in our community.
