Dear Prospective Donor,
In 1998, Dr. David Cook of Lakeside Family Physicians recognized a need in the Lake Norman community for those without health insurance to have access to appropriate and affordable medical care. He began seeing four to five uninsured patients on Wednesday nights in the back of an area grocery store. Within a year, 20-30 patients were seen on these evenings.
Sadly, the number of uninsured in our area continues to grow. Since those early days of treating patients in stores and churches, Lake Norman Community Health Clinic now serves as a medical home for approximately 1600 patients annually at our Hunters Road location. We’ve expanded hours of operation, added staff and volunteers, and enhanced our chronic disease program to include education, increased lab services, and follow-up with patients between appointments to reinforce behavioral change. We are making a difference, and we’re asking for your help to continue this work.
Last year marked the clinic’s first 98 Donors, $98 campaign. With a fundraising goal of $9600, were asking you to consider being one of 98 community partners who’ll contribute $98 to help uninsured residents in the Lake Norman area. Our fundraiser begins August 4th, and will continue through the clinic’s 19th birthday on September 4th.
Your donation is greatly appreciated, and will be used for direct patient care. Donations may be made online at the button to the left, or by check to P.O. Box 2398, Huntersville, NC 28070. We thank you in advance for your support!
