The Fallbrook Hospital Auxiliary received $2,500 to help fund its courier service, which drives patients to appointments out of town. The nonprofit organization not only serves hospital patients, it also raises funds for student scholarships and other special community healthcare needs.
Heart to Heart Camp Pendleton, a nonprofit that supports active duty military women and the wives of active duty military, was given $2,000 to help sponsor its annual appreciation luncheon. Now in its fifth year, the luncheon will be held on Sept. 27 and includes a buffet lunch, inspirational music, prizes and a guest speaker.
