Local Community Health Care Clinic Needs Community's Help
NBCRightNow.com - A local community health care clinic that provides health care to underserved and uninsured people needs the community's help to keep their doors open to everybody.
The Tri-Cities Community Health, a non-profit health care agency, is encouraging the community to participate in their annual telethon on NBC Right Now. Their goal is to raise $1 million.
"We are a safety net for a vulnerable number of people that are out there that really don't have access to health care," said Tri-Cities Community Health CEO, Al Cordova.
All of the money raised will help them continue their current programs serving the uninsured and underserved in our community. Local businesses, service groups, and Tri-Cities leaders are stepping up to help raise the money.
"What we're going to do at DuraShine Clean is that every new service that gets booked, every new residential service that gets booked with us; window washing, carpet cleaning, residential house cleaning. we're going to give ten dollars to the fundraising event," said Dura-Shine Clean Owner, Carlos Martinez.
From now until June 21st, anyone can log on here to donate. All fundraising will be capped with a one-hour telethon from their Pasco facility at 7 p.m. on June 21st.
