Superhero of the Month: Cheryl Shaw

This month we would like recognize Cheryl Shaw, a volunteer with Best Buddies San Diego. Best Buddies is a non-profit organization whose goal is to provide people with developmental disabilities with opportunities for one-on-one friendships. Volunteers from the community are matched into such a friendship with adults with disabilities who share similar interests. A Best Buddies friendship provides vital socialization skills, a heightened sense of independence and increased self-confidence to the people who are often neglected by mainstream society.

Cheryl volunteers about 15 hours each month through this program and has done so for the past two years! In addition to this, she has been a den leader with Cub Scouts, a volunteer with the Boy Scouts, and a board member for the Escrow Association.
