George’s Place – A Response to a Great Need

Posted

The Siouxland Community Health Center has established an in-house resource for adults and children who are in desperate need of new or clean clothes.

It is not at all unusual to see patients young and old come to a doctor’s appointment in clothes that are well beyond their useful life.  To see a young child in torn or dirty clothes or a senior citizen with no socks in the dead of winter is sad and unfortunate.

In response to this need, the Siouxland Community Health Center created “George’s Place” – an on-site closet full of new, clean clothes.  Socks – t-shirts – underwear – shirts – jeans, coats, etc.  We are able to purchase the clothes thanks to the generosity of our staff and outside donors.  When a patient, young or old, comes to us in that condition we will make sure they leave in new and clean clothes.

All funding for George’s Place comes from donations from the general public and staff and are tax-deductible.  Checks should be addressed to the Siouxland Community Health Foundation.
