Many seniors are in need and without the communities help they wouldn’t be able to get items as simple as a pair of socks. Each year, around the Holidays, Owens Healthcare heads up this event by providing every one of our locations with a stack of “adoption cards” on small Christmas Trees. Customers and employees can pick up these cards which have the seniors name and their wish list which can vary from a pair of slippers to a blanket. The gifts are then purchased and dropped back off to Owens Healthcare in which we take them to the Golden Umbrella in Redding to be handed out. We also donate other gifts for anyone who didn’t receive their request, so no one gets left out. For more information contact the Golden Umbrella or any Owens Pharmacy location.
The ultimate community bike riding celebration – The Spring Spin! This is an event Owens Healthcare sponsors each May held at the Sundial Bridge in Redding, CA. This fantastic event features live music, food, beer, prizes, custom bike valet parking, and everything you can imagine for cyclists of every level! Citizens throughout the entire community are welcome to this event which encourages the whole community to get out and ride!
Each year our locations participate in a company wide food drive to gather items in which we donate to local food banks. These drives gain hundreds of pounds of food while also spurring friendly competition between our locations, which ultimately does a lot of good for those in need!
In 2003, John Friesen, President and CEO of Owens Healthcare wanted to create an opportunity for talented riders in the area to get more exposure. The team’s main objective is to promote a healthy living. Anyone can cycle from their younger years to their golden years. Visit our cycling team’s website.
