Seaside Emergency Associates (SEA) spread some holiday love by donating nearly 150 pounds of turkey to Santa Paula families in need. A local school has a tradition of identifying students whose families could use a little extra help at Thanksgiving and gifting them with a turkey. SEA was happy to contribute 10 turkeys to this wonderful cause.
SEA is the group of physicians who take care of patients in Emergency Rooms both at VCMC and Santa Paula Memorial Hospital. In the words of CEO Dr. Jeff Robinson, his group “wants to support the Santa Paula community this holiday season. We get to take great care of our patients at the ER, and we want to spread that care to those outside the hospital as well.”
In addition to donating turkeys, SEA also is purchasing $500 worth of toys for the Santa Paula Boys and Girls Club as part of its 5th Annual Christmas Charity Christmas Party. The Christmas Party includes a silent auction benefiting Make-a-Wish, the Healthcare Foundation for Ventura County, and Toys For Tots. SEA has raised over $22,000 in the past 5 years as part of its charitable holiday giving and looks forward to many more years of helping the community!
