VCMC Residency Fire Victims Donate Now

Our beautiful VCMC family is in pain. The Thomas fire has devastated many families in our small community. Drs. Lambing, Baker, David, Bale, Weber, Jones and some of our clinic and Hospital staff have completely lost their homes in the fire. They left with a few belongings in their bags and the clothes on their backs. Please help us in raising money to give them a chance at rebuilding their lives.

 Visit to donate now.  All money will be used to support rebuilding our community.
