Celebration Of Community and Family
APA/APIFRN’s annual Community Family Day on June 7, sponsored by CPMC Sutter Health, was a collaborative event with Tenderloin Recreation Center to kick off the summer. We had 196 adults and 236 kids and 86 staff, community partner providers and volunteers participating in the event.
Marcia Trimble, author and publisher, donated over 500 of her books to our children during the event to promote family literacy and learning during the summer. Volunteers from McCarthy Building Companies helped distribute the books to the children and worked at our game booths and stations with the children.
Event sponsor Sutter Health CPMC set up a Teddy Bear Clinic to engage and educate the kids, and each child received a teddy bear.
Volunteers from Cisco-Meraki assisted the children’s interaction with the animals at the petting zoo and served food for participants.
This year’s collaboration included San Francisco Police Department, SF City Impact, Southeast Asian Art Culture Coalition, Chinese Community Health Care Association, NICOs and Chinatown Child Development Center to name a few. Health information and community resources were shared with families.
