Health care district doles out $1.8M in grants
February 03, 2015, 05:00 AM

The Peninsula Heath Care District granted $1.8 million in grants to 19 local organizations that are dedicated to promoting healthy living.

The district awarded the grants as part of an annual program which offers money to organizations, based on a review of health care needs and evolving priorities of local communities.

Caminar Bridges to Wellness Program, Catholic Charities Adult Day Health, Children’s Health Initiative, Community Gatepath, CORA, Edgewood Center, InnVision Shelter Network, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, Mid-Peninsula Boys and Girls Club, Ombudsman Services, Peninsula Family Services, Parca, Police Activities League, Samaritan House, San Bruno Park School Health Clinic, Second Harvest Food Bank, Senior Focus, StarVista and the Latino Commission all accepted a share of the grant money.

Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, also accepted recognition as the 2015 community health leader, during the district’s event last week honoring advocates in the health care field.

Agnes Herron also received honors as the district’s volunteer of the year, for her 18 years of volunteering at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center in San Mateo, and her service delivering food to low-income seniors and disabled adults through the Brown Bag program.
