As part of its annual December commitment to give back to the community, Foothill Regional Medical Center donated $2,000 to the Hurtt Family Health Clinic.
“We are so grateful to receive such a generous donation from Foothill Regional during this holiday season,” said the clinic CEO Jewel Loff. “Many of our patients and residents come to us with just the clothes on their back, so this donation means continuing to provide them with the basic necessities they need.”
Housed in the confines of the Orange County Rescue Mission, the Hurtt Family Health Clinic’s main goal is to provide low cost primary and specialized care to the homeless and underserved families of the Orange County community. The clinic offers medical, dental, vision, mental health, chiropractic and education services to the residents of the Rescue Mission.
Foothill Regional Medical Center’s donation provided basic necessity kits filled with staple items such as razors, shampoo, dental hygiene, and baby care for the patients at the clinic. The donation to the Hurtt Family Health Clinic will be distributed to the residents of the Orange County Rescue Mission, an organization providing housing, meals, medical attention and professional development to over 200 homeless persons and families.
“Every year, we are excited to be able to give back and donate to organizations that are joining us in the mission to keep our community healthy and happy,” said hospital CEO Araceli Lonergan. “Hurtt Clinic is a neighborhood organization that cares about the health and well-being of their members and we are happy to be able to contribute to their goals and sustainability.”
Both the hospital and the clinic are committed to helping Tustin’s underserved community.
