The Los Altos-based David and Lucile Packard Foundation held an open house Oct. 10 at its 343 Second St. headquarters to celebrate the 55th anniversary of its mission to improve the lives of children, advance reproductive health and rights, enable the creative pursuit of science and conserve and restore the Earth’s natural systems.
Attended by Los Altos residents and the foundation’s locally based grantees, the event offered an opportunity to connect and learn about the nonprofit organization, as well as some of its longtime institutional partners, including Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.
