Help NorthBay Fill the Ambulance

School Supplies Still Being Collected for Padan, Fairview

It's not too late to bring your cash donation or school supplies to one of three drop-off spots on NorthBay Healthcare campuses through this Friday.

It's all part of a Fill-the-Ambulance fundraiser to help students at Padan and Fairview elementary schools go back to school.Fill the Ambulance

If Padan and Fairview sound familiar, it's because they are the two schools NorthBay adopts every December for our Adopt-a-School program. Padan in Vacaville and Fairview in Fairfield are Title 1 schools, meaning they serve a low-income population and have a high population of English-language learners.

"We're trying to make it as easy as possible for any employee who wants to contribute," said Jane Hilliard, director of Volunteer Services. You can even drop off a donation at the Guild gift shops in either hospital any time during that week, or to any Guild member you encounter."

No time to shop for bargains? Cash donations are also welcome. Make your check out to NorthBay Healthcare Foundation and put "Fill-the-Ambulance" in the memo field.
Remaining collection dates are:

Today, Aug. 16: Vacaville's Center for Primary Care, aka Nut Tree North, will see the ambulance parked out front between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.

Thursday, Aug. 17: NorthBay VacaValley Hospital will be the stop for all employees on the VacaValley campus. Walk over from the Wellness Center, the VacaValley Health Plaza or the NorthBay Surgery Center at VacaValley to drop off between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Friday, Aug. 18: NorthBay Medical Center will see the ambulance parked outside the Welcome Pavilion from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be the drop-off spot for employees in the hospital, the Gateway Medical Building, the Annex, Penn Tab and the NorthBay Health Plaza.
