Helping hands

Letter Leon
With the holidays fast approaching, the giving spirit is in full swing in Long Beach. Senator Alan Lowenthal and The Children’s Clinic, “Serving Children and Their Families” (TCC) sponsored Thanksgiving dinner for several families on Nov. 21. The healthy trimmings included fresh green beans, sweet potatoes, whole-wheat bread and more in addition to the vouchers for turkeys purchased by Senator Alan Lowenthal.
Every year, we are touched by all the generous donors and particularly TCC staff that give to our families, whether it be for our annual food drive or our holiday toy and book drive. One of the recipients of this year’s food drive was the Jimenez family (pictured at right with nurse practitioner Margaret Tyree). They are patients of The Children’s Clinic Mutli-Service Center for the Homeless. But the family, recently moved to transitional housing a day before Thanksgiving, had not yet been able to purchase groceries.
For more information about TCC giving or the programs and services it provides, please contact the Development Department at (562) 246-4646 or visit .
