On Tuesday, November 22, the Samuel Dixon Family Health Centers, Inc. (SDFHC) located in Val Verde, received 60 turkeys that were donated by Valencia Water Company.
The turkeys, given in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, were distributed to families from all three of the health center locations in Val Verde, Newhall, and Canyon Country. SDFHC also provided some of their own giveaways for the families as well.
SDFHC Chief Executive Officer, Philip Solomon, states “We are grateful to the Valencia Water Company for their continuous support of our organization and to the families who come to us for health care, dental care, behavioral health counseling and health care enrollment support. This has been a great partnership and an annual tradition, something we could not do without the support from the Valencia Water Company and all their wonderful employees.”
