Give the gift of health and holiday cheer to children in need in our community.
Will you ensure a healthy and happy future for thousands of infants, kids and teens by supporting the 29th Annual Children’s Holiday Movie? Presented by Anthem Blue Cross, this is a vital fundraiser for our pediatric programs and creates a special holiday celebration for 1,200 of our youngest patients and their families. They will enjoy a private screening of DreamWorks Animation's upcoming feauture film Trolls, holiday music and gift bags with books and toys. The theater, entertainment and toys for the event are all donated, so 100% of donations go to supporting Venice Family Clinic pediatrics.
With your help, Children's Holiday Movie will raise $150,000 in critical funds to support the Clinic's comprehensive medical, dental, vision and mental health services for low-income and uninsured infants, children and teens throughout the year. Every $500 donated gives one more child the gift of comprehensive health care for the year.
Like the children we serve, Venice Family Clinic is growing. In June 2015 we were thrilled to open our 10th Clinic, the Lou Colen Children’s Health & Wellness Center in Mar Vista; where the reality facing local families is startling. Right now, thousands of low-income families in and around Mar Vista do not have a doctor to call when their children get sick. Of the 29,000 children living in poverty on the Westside, an estimated 6,000 are uninsured and 6,000 have no regular source of health care. Together, we have changed this troubling fact by offering health care to 4,500 of these children.
We are continuing to grow! In April we started to work on Phase II of this wellness complex. The new addition will feature a dental clinic, pharmacy and community room for exercise classes and meetings. This facility will provide dental care to 1,200 additional children.
