Neighborhood Clinics Still Seeking Cash


Thursday, June 20, 2013

In late May, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics issued an urgent announcement about its increasingly dire financial straits and asked for the community’s help in raising $1.5 million to ensure continued health care for the more than 16,000 patients who visit the clinics each year. Since then, individual donors and organizations have given just over $50,000, including $5,000 raised by Dance for Humanity during a benefit event and $15,000 collected by Pacific Western Bank at an open house for its new Santa Barbara branch. The Mithun Family Foundation has also pledged $15,000. Make donations online at sbclinics.com, by phone at 617-7869, or mail to Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics, 1900 State Street, Suite G, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.
