Sterling, VA (March 14, 2015) – The Dulles Greenway announced today that Loudoun Free Clinic has been added to their annual Drive for Charity event on Thursday, May 21st. The Drive for Charity is initiative where all toll proceeds collected on the designated day on the Dulles Greenway (Loudoun County, VA) are distributed to six local charities and the Greenway Scholarship Program. The selected charities will share in the distributed one day gross revenues of the Drive for Charity.
Terry Hoffman, Public and Customer Relations Manager for the Dulles Greenway explained, “We are thrilled to have Loudoun Free Clinic as a new participant in our event. There are many worthy charities in Loudoun but we felt Loudoun Free Clinic was the best fit for our event. Currently, there are many uninsured residents waiting for medical services and we would like to assist in reducing those waiting times to zero over the next three years.”
Loudoun Free Clinic cares for thousands of people struggling with acute and chronic medical conditions. They coordinate all of their visits, medications, tests, surgeries, and often transportation to ensure that all treatments are provided at limited cost to the patients. Rahman Parker, Executive Director says, “Roughly 70% of our patients are indigent, and they deserve quality, unique healthcare. By doing so, we are delivering hope to our most vulnerable population.”
Last year Loudoun Free Clinic provided services to more than 1,000 individuals through approximately 6,580 visits. The community has a need for the Loudoun Free Clinic to increase its current patient capacity by almost 50% in 2015. For more information on Loudoun Free Clinic, visit: www.loudounfreeclinic.org.
