BENEFITING: CLAREMONT SOUP KITCHEN INC
Over the course of the past year we've worked to set up a free student-run health clinic at the Claremont Soup Kitchen in Claremont, NH. We've been incredibly lucky to have the clinic flourish, and are now holding weekly clinics in two brand-new patient exam rooms using donated supplies and equipment and supervised by volunteer doctors. That said, the clinic is in need of funds to ensure it can continue to run and succeed into the future. We'd love your help! We, our fellow medical student volunteers, and all the soup kitchen and clinic patrons thank you for your support.
Best, Erik and Christine
Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth students
UPDATE - Wow, we've been overwhelmed with the response! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! If you'd like more background on the clinic, see the Valley News story below:
Also, a note on the $10,000 goal: when the exam rooms were built, the soup kitchen spent this much to construct them and has not fully recouped the cost yet. If the goal is met here, the rooms will be fully paid for and the clinic will have a small endowment fund for supplies well into the future.
