A grant from the Yardley, England, Trimmer, and Orlich Charities Fund at the Central Florida Foundation provides medical care for Winter Haven residents.
LAKELAND (September 30, 2021) – The Yardley, England, Trimmer, and Orlich Charities Fund at the Central Florida Foundation has awarded a grant of $10,191.98 to GiveWell Community Foundation (GWCF) to assist residents in the Winter Haven area who are unable to afford medical care. To achieve this, GWCF accepted grant applications from several nonprofit clinics serving Winter Haven. Angels Care Center of Eloise received full funding.
Angels Care Center of Eloise is a faith-based primary care clinic that provides free health care to residents in the Eloise and Winter Haven area with no medical health insurance. Volunteer physicians provide free general health care at the facility, and the clinic negotiates with local medical centers to provide specialized services at reduced rates. Their “Dental, Orthopedic, Vision for Everyone” program received $10,191.98 to help cover costs of expensive procedures such as surgeries, glasses, hearing aids, and dentures.
