No Longer “NEWS”, but still important: Effective Oct. 1, 2014 – New Rules concerning prescriptions for “controlled substances”
A Letter from our President:
Last month, Orcas Family Health Center began a fundraising campaign to raise
$175,000 by November 27, 2017 so we can keep our doors open.
The reason for the campaign was because of an over-payment by a Washington State insurance provider which had to be repaid through monthly installments which subsequently cut into our monthly operating budget.
Through the generosity of our island patients and friends, Orcas Family Health Center raised $99,536.00 by our deadline. With the monies raised thus far, we will be able to eliminate the debt to the insurance company but are still left with a deficit in the operating budget by the $75,000 balance.
The OFHC Board and Dr. David Shinstrom are pleased to announce that we will
remain open in 2018 if the funds continue to come in at the current pace.
We are extending our fundraising deadline to January 8, 2018.
If you were one of the donors who said you could give more by year’s end we
urge you now to reach deeply. If you were one of the businesses who said you’d
like to donate a week’s income/sale proceeds, now is the time.
Dr. Shinstrom, the staff and the OFHC Board are encouraged we can reach the
remainder of our goal.
$75,000 is attainable with your help.
Please make checks payable to:
Orcas Family Health Center, P.O. Box 1055, Eastsound, WA 98245 or you may click on the Donate link on this web page.
All contributions are 100% tax deductible.
OFHC Board President
A note included with a donation received in November:
“It was entirely my pleasure. That’s the first serious donation I’ve ever
made and dang what a high! I’m surprised rich people aren’t giving their
money away right and left. I sure hope they are in your case.”
