This Christmas season we invite you to join us in our First Annual Holiday Community Service Event benefiting a local family in need and the Open Arms Food Bank!
Pinon Family Practice along with our staff, patients, vendors, local businesses and community members will be sponsoring a local, Grandmother of 6. Michelle is a mother of three and her family suffered the incredibly premature and horrific loss of her daughter Jayme, in 2014. Michelle is raising, as the sole guardian and provider for 4 of her 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 6-12 years old. Michelle receives very little assistance or help outside of efforts like ours and could really use our help this Christmas season and beyond! We’ve asked Michelle to put together a list of items that the children WANT and a list of items that the children NEED so we can join Santa in providing a nice Christmas for this family. In addition to taking a collection of gifts, we are organizing a Christmas Day snacks donation list and will have a sign-up list for those items. If you have any Christmas arts and crafts (such as ornaments, gingerbread house kits) to help them get excited for this wonderful and giving season, please let us know! Any way in which you can help, whether a small monetary donation or picking an item off of the Christmas list or providing a dinner donation, please ask to speak with Amy Patterson, our Practice Administrator or call direct 303-862-3484.
We have also joined with Open Arms Food Bank, a Littleton based food pantry that services over 200 families a week with grocery items! While this food pantry does not turn away anyone from anywhere (Littleton/Jeffco resident or not) we do know that many families in our own community use the pantry and will benefit from our generosity. Partner with us and bring in shelf-stable food items (non-expired, canned and/or boxed items) to put in the collection containers just inside of our front doors. We plan to have the containers picked up as often as necessary until December 22, 2017. If this is a great success, we’d love to make this an ongoing effort of giving back to the community!
Just as much as we appreciate you for trusting us as your healthcare Providers, we cannot even begin to express our gratitude for joining us in our First Annual Holiday Community Service Event! May your Holidays be merry and bright!
In good health.
