PHOENIX - While most people spent Christmas with their loved ones, many healthcare professionals and volunteers spent the holiday giving back to people in the community.
They helped provide free dental and medical care to thousands of people.
The free event was put on by the Seventh Day Adventist Church with the help of volunteers from Your Best Pathway to Health.
"This morning I've had quite a number that are homeless that had no place to stay, others have no insurance, no way to cover their costs, and there's a whole variety of people in this country, unfortunately, that fall through the cracks and have no way to get medical care," said Loma Linda University President, Dr. Richard Hart.
