Director’s Note – September 2017

I am a member of the Nampa Lions Club. Their emphasis is on health, so it was a good fit for me. Something happened recently that reminded of how important it is to work together to make our community a better place. Our speaker represented the Community Council of Idaho, which is building a new Community Family Clinic in Twin Falls. After the meeting I told her that Hands of Hope NW may be able to help them with equipment for their new clinic. Ruben Lugo, COO, came over immediately to talk to me about this. The end result is that we will donate sixteen exam room tables for the new clinic, saving them the $25,000 they had budgeted for the tables! This money can now be used for services to help more people!

We are well aware that we could not make this happen without our partners in the medical community. The tables were donated to us by St. Alphonsus Medical Center. They too have a heart for helping the community and we are blessed to have them as one of our major donors. With your help, we are making a difference both locally and globally!
