On August 7th the Clarinda Foundation had an award ceremony to recognize all the recipients of their grants from 2019. The Clarinda Medical Foundation was awarded a $10,000 grant to help support CRHC’s Junior Cardinal Backpack program. CRHC’s Greg Jones was proud to accept this grant award at the ceremony on behalf of the Medical Foundation and the Population Health Team here at CRHC.
The Backpack program is important to CRHC because it directly affects children in our community who struggle with food insecurity. Data suggests that “1 in 6 children in Iowa or 13% of all children in Page County are food insecure.” (data provided by Page Co Pubic Health)
