MITSUBISHI FOUNDATION DONATES BUS TO THE YMCA

(BLOOMINGTON, Ill.) – The Bloomington-Normal YMCA is the beneficiary of a
shuttle bus thanks to the generosity of the Mitsubishi Motors Foundation and the

O’Brien Auto Team. “The bus will be utilized to accommodate our growing After-
School Youth Enrichment program and Summer Day Camp program. We’re so

grateful for this outstanding contribution” stated Sarah Tunall, Director of Youth
Development. This coming school year, the YMCA has partnered with Calvary
United Methodist Church to provide an After-School Youth Enrichment program for
students at Prairieland and Grove elementary schools. The bus will be used to
transport students from the schools to Calvary United Methodist Church. Currently,
the bus is serving the purpose of transporting Teen Summer Day Campers to and
from local service projects. “The Mitsubishi Foundation and the O’Brien Auto team
are proud to support the YMCA and the youth of our community”, indicated Ryan
Gremore, General Manager/President of O’Brien Auto Team. “As the Y builds its new
facility and as programming grows, we’re honored to assist with future
transportation needs”.
