Pacificans Care supports children, seniors, and families in need
Pacifica Tribune, 8/12/16. "Pacificans Care awards 2016 grants."
"Pacificans Care, created in 1982, provides supplemental support to Pacifica Child Care and Senior Services, the Pacifica Resource Center, and the Pacifica Youth Services Bureau, affiliated with YMCA. Over the years Pacificans Care has provided more than $784,000 to support specific agency needs such as senior transportation services, meals-on-wheels vehicles, facility renovations and furnishings, child safety programs, counseling services in schools, field trips for youngsters, and emergency funds. All the donations collected go directly to Pacificans.
This year Pacificans Care awarded $47,000 in grants to the Youth Service Bureau for school counseling services, Pacifica Senior Services for Meals on Wheels for home bound seniors, Pacifica Child Care Services for summer enrichment programs, and the Pacifica Resource Center for support of Pacifica families in need.
The grants have been made possible through the generosity of many Pacificans who contribute to Pacificans Care through the annual Share of Care Drive, Speakeasy Night and the Partner program. Mark your calendars to save the date for the annual Pacificans Care Speakeasy Night fundraiser coming Friday, Nov. 4 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Community Center. ..."

"Long time Pacifica resident and disability advocate Gioconda Egan and Oceana Market owner Vasu Narayanan were presented as the ‘2015 People Who Care’ recipients by Pacificans Care at a reception in their honor at the community center last week. The ‘People Who Care’ award was established by Pacificans Care in 2002 'to recognize groups, business or individuals who have significantly contributed to the well-being of the community and through their actions and contribution have exemplified Pacifica as a community that cares'.”
