Our September Special Collection will go to St. Clare Health Mission in La Crosse. Through St. Clare Health Mission, volunteer healthcare provider join together to provide free healthcare to those who have gone without due to a lack of financial resources. The term “health mission” describes not only the program, but the motivation which guides it. In the past 30 years, volunteers have served over 18,000 people in over 80,000 visits to our clinic, treating a wide variety of health conditions. Jason Larsen, the Executive Director of St. Clare Mission, explains that “Our forward thinking and supportive board has allowed us to meet the needs of our patient population in new ways, that are truly as equitable as they are expensive. So far this year, our patient visits are up 40% over this time last year. The added costs, for us, are both medication costs, and increased costs for newer, higher performing diabetic medications. Additionally, the new mobile clinic adds costs of fuel, medications, and medical supplies. 

In just under two weeks of mobile medicine, we have seen over 50 patients – patients experiencing homelessness at Houska Park, patients at a local farm, and we delivered 19 sport physicals to Latino athletes in Arcadia last Thursday. We are incredibly thankful for your support!”
