MEDIA ADVISORY - Check Presentations
(McKinney, TX) – The Collin County Healthcare Foundation will
award grants to two clinics on Thursday, October 23rd, in Plano. The Collin
County Adult Clinic and the Plano Children’s Medical Clinic will receive $50,000
each to assist with services.
The first check presentation is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the Collin County Adult Clinic, 1100 W. 15th Street (located on the SW corner of Alma and 15th). The adult clinic, which opened in March, provides services to indigent and underinsured adults who are unable to pay for healthcare. The grant funding will allow the clinic to continue its efforts in providing services to those in need.
The second check presentation is scheduled for approximately 6 p.m. at the Plano Children’s Medical Clinic, 1407 14th Street. Grant funding will, among other things, provide additional assistance with the purchase and operational expenses of a mobile unit, which will assist with the clinic’s outreach efforts throughout the county.
Members of the Collin County Commissioners Court serve as trustees to the healthcare foundation, which was created with proceeds from the sale of the county hospital and provides funds for indigent healthcare. Earlier this year, the foundation announced it would provide $100,000 in grant funding to assist with those community organizations that provide healthcare for indigent patients.
