Holiday Happenings in the Inland Area

The cool air of fall has finally come to Inland Southern California and as we give thanks and head into the Holiday season there are several SEIU 721 sponsored family friendly events to attend.

Festival of Trees
Nov. 26 – 30 (closed Thanksgiving)
ie_festival_tree_detail_150px.jpgEach year SEIU 721 sponsors a holiday tree at the Riverside County Regional Medical Center Foundation’s Festival of Trees held at the Riverside Convention Center in downtown Riverside from Nov. 26 – 30.Donations go to purchase much needed equipment for the children’s unit at RCRMC. The SEIU 721 design committee took this year’s theme – “For the Love of a Child” – and decorated our tree in the spirit of “The Joy of Caring for Children” to honor our hard working nurses, social workers and others, who keep children safe and healthy every day.Please mark your ballot tree #15 for Best Children’s Themed Tree.
