Board Members Take a Tour of Rock River Free Clinic

Whitewater Community Foundation board members visited Rock River Free Clinic (RRFC) this morning to meet another recipient of our inaugural Community Action Grants. Danielle Frawley, Dawn Hunter and David Yochum presented a check to Executive Director Kristin Wallace for $2,500 to help defray drug costs for RRFC clients. The RRFC is a nonprofit 501(3)c clinic led by a volunteer board of directors. It provides health care and education to community members in Whitewater, Jefferson County and Cambridge. The clinic became a fulltime clinic with a fulltime physician and registered nurse in 2012 through its pursuit of strong partnerships with Fort Healthcare and Jefferson County. They provide profound quality of care for our low income and uninsured neighbors. Healthy citizens make healthy communities, and more than 80 percent of RRFC clients need some sort of assistance with life-saving medications for chronic disease, such as diabetes. The Whitewater Community Foundation is honored to assist in helping area residents access these critical medications.
