Froedtert and Aurora have each providing a $50,0000 challenge grant to benefit the Albrecht Free Clinic. As a result, each dollar raised will result in three dollars in funding for the clinic’s community healthcare services.
“Put another way, if the rest of us rise to the challenge and contribute $50,000, we’ll generate $150,000 more to continue and expand our mission,” said Ruth Henkle, executive director of the Albrecht Free Clinic.
The Albrecht Free Clinic, located at 908 W. Washington St. in West Bend, provides free medical and dental care to uninsured and underinsured residents of Washington County who are living at 200 percent or more below the federal poverty level.
“We are especially proud to be a part of this very important initiative to help secure the future of the Albrecht Free Clinic so that they can continue to serve those in need. Their work aligns perfectly with Aurora’s purpose to help each other live well,” said Carrie Killoran, executive vice president of Aurora Health Care’s Central Region.
No donation is too small, according to Henkle. “Through this matching grant, each person can really make a big impact with a smaller amount,” Henkle said. To donate, visit www.albrechtfreeclinic.org or send a check to the Albrecht Free Clinic, 908 W. Washington St., West Bend, WI 53095.
