WESTON, Conn. -- The Kiwanis Club of Weston Foundation recently gave the Bob McCauley AmeriCares Free Clinic of Norwalk $3,000 to support the clinic's pediatric program.
The Bob Macauley AmeriCares Free Clinic of Norwalk is one of four AmeriCares Free Clinics in Fairfield County offering medical care to low-income, uninsured patients. The clinic, at 98 South Main St. in Norwalk, provides medical care to pediatric patients on Wednesday afternoons.
Kiwanians Rick Amill, Nina Daniel, Dawn Egan and Glenn Van Deusen were on hand for the Jan. 16 check presentation. Accepting on behalf of AmeriCares were Clinic Director Barbara McCabe, and Assistant Director Linda Russell.
“In addition to treating children with acute and episodic illnesses, the Pediatric Clinic provides physical examinations to children whose parents cannot afford the cost of an exam. Without that exam, children might be denied entrance to school and day care,” said Nina Daniel of the Kiwanis Club of Weston Foundation. “This is an enormous service to the community resulting in fewer missed school days for the children, as well as fewer work absences for parents who must stay home with their children.”
The Kiwanis Club of Weston is a philanthropic and service organization whose membership is open to all who live or work locally.
