Four GREAT local charities benefit from the Mikuni Scoop Scoot.
The Front Street Animal Shelter does far more than caring for lost and abandoned animals in our community. We provide a variety of services that protect both citizens and animals. More importantly, we keep lost pets safe and sound so that they can hopefully be reunited with their owner or adopted into a new family.
Saint John’s is for the woman who wants to make the leap. Who will fight the pervasive influence of homelessness, poverty, and abuse. Who will make an empowered decision to rise up and become a productive community member. Who understands, unequivocally, that the decision to create a better life – for herself and for her family – rests entirely on her.
The Child Life Program at Sutter Children’s Center strives to empower children and families to cope, understand, and heal as they encounter illness and hospitalization. Child Life Specialists work with the child, parents and hospital staff to make life as normal as possible and to minimize the emotional trauma to the infant, child or adolescent and his or her family.
The Child Life Program at UC Davis Children’s Hospital helps to minimize the anxiety of hospitalization, increase understanding and strengthen coping skills while helping children to continue their typical growth and development. Child life specialists provide support and age-appropriate coping strategies, while educating families, staff and physicians about the special needs of hospitalized children.
