On behalf of Axis Community Health's patients, board and staff, I would like to thank you and your readers for the extraordinary $14,702.64 contribution we received from the 2020-21 Holiday Fund campaign.
The Holiday Fund truly makes a difference in our ability to provide care for Tri-Valley families, especially during the pandemic. These funds will be used to purchase in-home blood pressure monitoring devices for the Axis Health Connect program for vulnerable seniors who have hypertension.
The ability to monitor patients' blood pressure is essential to ensuring ongoing good health and for catching changes in condition in a timely manner. These patients are at higher risk for contracting COVID-19 due to their age and underlying chronic illness, so in-home monitoring is important for keeping patients safely at home.
We greatly appreciate that the Pleasanton Weekly's journalistic efforts put a spotlight on the challenges that the health crisis has brought to the delivery of health care and the innovative solutions we have implemented.
We also thank the caring community of Pleasanton Weekly readers for their generous response. We are truly grateful for your philanthropic work and deeply appreciate Axis being a beneficiary of the Holiday Fund.

LV Opera cover story
I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I was to see Livermore Valley Opera as the cover story of your Arts and Entertainment section. Livermore Valley Opera is entering its 30th season and has grown to be a substantial part of the cultural activity in the Tri-Valley. Thank you so much for supporting us during this difficult time of no live productions.
-- Stephanie Petermeier, director of audience development, LV Opera
Great arts coverage
Thank you for supporting the arts in Pleasanton and its surrounding communities. We are enriched to hear that creativity surrounds us, welcoming us to join in as observers and participants.
Tri-Valley Writers are encouraged by your support for writers in genres ranging from poetry to adult fantasy. And thank you for announcing our meetings. I enjoy Dolores Fox Ciardelli's wide-ranging coverage of our local arts scene -- from opera to film to enacted history.
