SAN JOSE, Calif. (December 21, 2023) — Pacific Clinics’ Bay Area Holiday Giving Drive raised nearly $40,000, supporting more than 1,300 children in Santa Clara County with gifts in time for the holidays. In addition, 84 brand new bicycles were donated to children and teens, including many who indicated transportation support was a top need.
The festive event, run by Pacific Clinics employees and community partners who generously gave their time, was full of holiday cheer, special balloon designs, arts and crafts, food and face painting.
“Each year, local Pacific Clinics supporters and employees come together to create a memorable holiday season for thousands of people we serve, and this year was no exception,” said Regional Executive Director, Bay Area Region Don Taylor. “This event helped spread joy and supported children and families in our care so they can concentrate on their families and togetherness during the holidays.”
