In August of 2010, Crossroads Clinic - VIM (originally known as VIM LSL) opened its doors to provide FREE primary care to our community. With our motto of "Neighbors Caring for Neighbors" it's no surprise that our neighbors have also become some of our biggest supporters.
It all started with a donation from Cuivre River Electric, our first donation we ever received. Cuivre River has been a supporting partner from day one and has made it possible to help patients with their medication and so much more. Their support continues to current day. In October 2015 the Clinic received a $5000 check (see photo).
"Their concern for the survival of our Mission is alive and well today," said Cheryl Moellenhoeff, Crossroads Clinic Board President.
The support from our "Neighbors" doesn't just end there. During the fourth quarter of 2015, Crossroads Clinic has seen numerous donations from the community to help support our cause.
In November 2015, the SSM St. Joseph Hospital West Medical Staff donated $5,000. This group has donated yearly and has consistently increased their monetary donation. Not only do they give through cash donations they also give their time seeing patients for specialty care at no charge.
The Wentzville Community Club graciously donated $3,000 in November 2015. The grant is to be used for diabetic supplies such as syringes, machines to test blood for glucose levels and other diabetic needs. They have donated almost every year since our inception. It has always been their request that the donation be used in some way to off set the cost of care for our diabetic patients.
At the United Methodist Church of Wentzville, many of their church groups donate to Crossroads Clinic. In October 2015 the Men's Group, Women's Group donated as well as their Adopt-A-Family group donated $1000.
Another group earmarking their donations for diabetic care is the Wentzville American Legion Post 323. In November 2015 they donated $600. This group has had an ongoing donation partnership with Crossroads Clinic.
Helping with rent at the clinic is another way groups can give back. The Lake Saint Louis VFW Post 10350 donated $900 in September 2015. That donation covered one months rent.
The Harmon Foundation donated $7,500 in November 2015 and this is not their first time helping the patients at Crossroads Clinic. These funds donated allowed us an opportunity for the first time to help patients with restorative dental care and Sleep Apnea Care. (see photo)
Also in December 2015 The WalMart Foundation (Lake Saint Louis Store) provided the clinic with a $2,500 grant.
Each and everyone of these donations along with the countless hours given by volunteers has helped us fulfill our motto of "Neighbors Caring for Neighbors" and we hope to continue providing primary healthcare for individuals that qualify throughout 2016 and beyond.
