Salon Concert with Dr. Adam Kendall

Thank You to Dr. Adam R. Kendall, who will be sharing his amazing musical talents in support of Foothill Unity Center!  Come join us for an evening concert.

Dr. Adam Kendall is a board certified physician in family medicine and palliative care who carried a passion for classical music throughout his medical career.  He began playing the violin and piano at the age of 5.  He continued his love of music and studied violin performance at the University of California, San Diego in 1995.  After his first two years of medical school at USC, he moved to Oregon and performed with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra.

Many of Dr. Kendall’s violin and piano solos are chosen for their ability to console and to inspire, two qualities which he found patients appreciated when he played in hospitals and convalescent homes.  In 2015, Dr. Kendall began raising money for the Foothill Unity Center at the Monrovia Farmer’s Market. We are honored that he has chosen to support the work of Foothill Unity Center through his musical talents.

Holiday Angels Program – 2015


Adopt an Angel and Grant a Child’s Gift Wishes!

It’s hard enough not to be able to give your children gifts for the holidays.  But it can be just as hard to watch as they get toys from a charity.

At Foothill Unity Center, we do it another way. Every holiday season, we send hundreds of paper angels out into our communities.  Each one has been lovingly hand-colored by volunteers from local schools and community groups.  Each carries the real holiday gift wishes of a single child.

Some of our friends adopt one angel and buy its gifts.  Others, including businesses, clubs and community groups, adopt whole flights of angels, filling wishes by the score.

As our angels return to us with their unwrapped presents, we create a gift bag for each family and give it to the parents during our annual Holiday Distribution.  The bags are opaque, so kids can’t see what’s inside — allowing families to wrap and give the gifts as part of their own holiday traditions.

Angels are waiting for adoption now at both our locations. Questions? Contact:
