Volunteers in Medicine Clinic of the Cascades (VIM) is pleased to announce a donation of $5,000 from Les Schwab Tire Centers. The donation will support VIM’s volunteer program.
“Les Schwab has been the strongest supporter of VIM’s volunteer program since 2011. We are very thankful for their continued belief in our work,” said Executive Director of VIM Kat Mastrangelo. “With the help of Les Schwab and their employees, we are able to keep VIM’s 250 dedicated volunteers trained for their positions in the clinic and proficient in the cultural needs of the population we serve.”
VIM provides healthcare on a donation basis to uninsured, low-income adults that are not eligible for, or able to access, medical care through Affordable Care Act programs. VIM’s goal is to keep adults in the tri-county area as healthy as possible so they can work, take care of their families, and be contributing members of our community.
“It’s estimated that about 6,000 people remain medically uninsured in the tri-county area,” stated Mastrangelo. “With the help of our dedicated volunteers, community medical partners and supportive donors like Les Schwab, VIM will continue to serve the working and uninsured for as long as there is a need.”
