Donations help local clinic
LEWISTON, ID – A free clinic in Lewiston said they will be able to continue helping patients thanks to donations from two local organizations.

The Snake River Community Clinic (SRCC) provides care for underserved people in the Valley.

Employees from Valley Medical Center’s Advisory Committee organized several fundraisers during the past several months, raising money to buy a new otoscope for the clinic.

"We opened over 14 years ago and all of our equipment, including the otoscopes , are pretty old and were dragging the very end of their lives out,” said SRCC Director Charlotte Ash. “By having the proper equipment we’re more able to give our patients appropriate care, so this donation is very important to us."

Kary Lockart from Valley Medical’s Advisory Committee presented the otoscope today. Lockarts team raised more than $300 to buy the piece of equipment.
