Holiday Fund donation helps Axis

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Axis Community Health's patients and staff, we would like to thank you for the generous contribution we received last week from the Pleasanton Weekly's Holiday Fund.

This donation will allow us to provide additional pediatric medical visits for children from low income working families in the Tri-Valley.

These difficult economic times have affected many Tri-Valley families - many have lost jobs, and with that, their health insurance. The number of medical visits we are providing at Axis has increased by 25% over the same time last year. Support from the community is especially important this year as we strive to meet this growing need for care.

We are very fortunate to be a part of this generous and caring community and we thank everyone who contributed to the Holiday Fund.

Sue Compton

Chief Executive Officer
