“We at Empire Transportation are big fans and supporters of AltaMed’s East LA Meets Napa food & wine tasting event. This event offers the perfect combination of wonderful food, excellent wines and amazing company while raising funds to help underserved communities. After attending the event and learning about what AltaMed does for our neighbors, I knew I had to get involved.

Empire Transportation has partnered with AltaMed to provide transportation to those in need – such as seniors who need transportation to medical appointments. In addition, I now serve on the Board of Trustees and as Co-chair of the Women in Action committee, which raises funds to provide women’s health services. I am extremely proud to work alongside AltaMed to give back to our shared community by increasing access to quality medical care and promoting women’s health.”

“I was volunteering at the Huntington Beach Clinic and saw that a lot of families were not getting the full medical attention they needed, even though the services were offered at the clinic. I’d look at these sick kids, smiling with their teeth all out of sorts, and wonder if somebody had reached out to the parents to see if the kid had been to the dentist. I spoke to the Clinic Administrator. She said that she would love to hire more staff, but would need help raising additional resources. I went home and spoke with my wife, Patti, and we decided to do something about it.

Twelve years ago, we started an annual golf tournament at Sea Cliff Country Club, where we are members. I never saw myself as a health nut or advocate. I just saw a problem in my community and decided to help by supporting my local clinic.”

“My company, Barreto/Rezinas Employee Benefits and Insurance Services, has been a corporate sponsor of AltaMed events for more than a decade. Our firm has identified AltaMed as both an important and strategic partner over the years. As someone who works with many different businesses, I have seen how AltaMed serves the people we work with. The work they do is essential to providing care for those we rely on every day and keeping our community healthy.

From a business standpoint, supporting AltaMed is a no brainer. When our neighbors are healthy, the local economy thrives. Plus, it feels great knowing that we are supporting an organization with such an important, inspiring mission in our own backyard!”
