At the inaugural Sensorio Gives Back Sunday on Sept. 27, nearly $15,000 was raised for local area charities Family Care Network and the San Luis Obispo Food Bank. Due to the success of the event, Sensorio announced a second Sensorio Gives Back Sunday event, this time benefiting The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County and SLO LEAF.

The organization serves the community as a leader and expert in improving the nutritional health of Santa Barbara County through increased food security.

The San Luis Obispo Law Enforcement Assistance Foundation (SLO LEAF) is committed to providing immediate and temporary financial assistance to law enforcement agency personnel and their immediate families, who are currently employed or honorably retired from a San Luis Obispo County law enforcement agency, in a time of death, serious injury, critical illness or other catastrophic circumstances. SLO LEAF was founded to help relieve the financial burden associated with the sacrifices of life or injuries sustained from being in harm’s way and offers assistance in coping with costs that often exceed insurance coverage. By giving back to law enforcement agencies’ families, SLO LEAF allows them to focus on recovery instead of financial burdens. For more information on SLO LEAF, the public may visit www.sloleaf.org.
