Hospital and Medical Staff donate $30,000

Medical City McKinney and its medical staff donated $30,000 to three local charities – Community Food Pantry of McKinney, Community Health Clinic of McKinney and McKinney Education Foundation.

Both Medical City McKinney and its medical staff donated $5,000 each for a total of $10,000 to each of the three charities.

Medical City McKinney has supported all three of these organizations for more than 10 years,” said Ernest C. Lynch, III, CEO of Medical City McKinney. “The hospital and our medical staff are honored to be a part of their mission to develop programs, services and scholarships that benefit so many.”

The Community Health Clinic’s mission is to provide basic healthcare and preventative health education to qualifying residents of Collin County. With 995 active patients, the clinic had 2,500 patient visits this year.

“The Community Health Clinic is a much-needed healthcare resource in the community and Medical City McKinney’s support helps us to continue our role to provide an essential public service to the health and welfare of the community,” said Jackie Rakowski, Executive Director of the Community Health Clinic.

 The Community Food Pantry of McKinney is a nonprofit outreach program that provides food to families and individuals in need. Last year, the food pantry provided 93,408 meals, which fed 3,308 children and 4,356 adults.

“This donation will help the Community Food Pantry buy enough groceries for 10,638 meals,” said Carol Bodwell, director and board president of the Community Food Pantry. “That’s a lot of food for a lot of people.”

The McKinney Education Foundation raises money for educational grants for McKinney ISD teachers and for scholarships for deserving graduates of McKinney high schools and Serenity High, for students recovering from substance abuse.

“Medical City McKinney’s support allows us the opportunity to continue our impact on McKinney ISD students through scholarship, grant and college advisor programs,” said Ashley Sine, executive director of McKinney Education Foundation.
