The Free Clinic of Pulaski received a $27,000 donation from the New River Valley Health Foundation (NRVHF) to be used to help fund programs and services for the uninsured adults of Pulaski County.
According to Debbie Suddarth, the executive director of the Pulaski Free Clinic, this foundation has been a major and continuous contributor to the clinic for many years. The donation will go toward continued services and operational expenses.
Suddarth spoke on behalf of the board, staff and patients, stating their appreciation for the foundation’s continued support. She also said the NRVHF sees and understands the medical concerns of the uninsured of Pulaski County.
“Our clinic will only continue to serve our uninsured neighbors through the generosity of foundations like the NRVHF and other concerned community groups, churches and private citizens of Pulaski County who understand the need and addresses the need through monetary support and volunteer time,” said Suddarth.
Those who want to make a contribution to the Free Clinic may do so by mailing it to P. O. Box 1088, Pulaski. Those who would like to volunteer three hours a week can call 980-0922, Wednesday through Friday, to speak with Suddarth.
