Joplin Community Clinic receives $10,000 donation

Updated:

 $10,000 is headed to the Community Clinic of Joplin, thanks to a donation from the Rotary Club of Joplin.  The presentation was made at the Twin Hills Golf Club.  Money was raised through a charity golf tournament, with sponsors and participants throughout the Joplin community.  The clinic helps the poor and uninsured.

Clinic workers say the donation will help fund a variety of services.

"There is a cost associated with all the medications we give away.  We give away the value of 1.5 million dollars in the eight counties that we serve, in medications alone, every year," says Barbara Bilton with the Community Clinic.

"The money will go directly to providing the medical and dental care.  You know, there's a lot of costs with seeing a patient for regular doctors visits.  Even though our doctors and nurse practitioners are volunteers, we do employ one nurse practitioner," says Bilton.

"We are solely funded by grants and donations.  So this money will go a long way to help out uninsured neighborhoods in our community, regarding their medical care," says Bilton.

Donations were also given to several other organizations, including:  Watered Gardens, Bill & Virginia Leffen Center for Autism, Aspire, American red Cross, The Joplin Promise, Joplin NALA, Art Feeds, Boys & Girls Club, George A Spiva Center for the Arts, and Home Medical Equipment Services.
