Image of Mountain View Voice A lot of people donate food, gifts or money around the holidays, but there is a special group of people who give year-round -- they give their time. Mountain View Rotacare at 2400 Grant Road is one of 12 Rotacare clinics in the Bay Area that offer free healthcare for the community's uninsured. "Our mission is to provide access to medical care to those with the least access available, said Mirella Nguyen, the manager.
