To the Editor:

A big THANK YOU to each and every one who helped the Lakeshore Community Health Center and United Way of Sheboygan County meet the ACUITY Charitable Foundation $100,000 match challenge.

Your donations of just over $120,000, when added to the $122,000 donated by the ACUITY Charitable Foundation, raised a total of $242,000. The donor list of names exceeds 200 individuals, groups, organizations, foundations, churches and businesses. Donations came from all across the county and included small business owners, educators, city and county government employees, attorneys, dentists, physicians, employees of numerous companies throughout Sheboygan County, retirees, employees from non-profit organizations, community clubs, organizations, foundations and community members. Some employee groups even raised funds through dress down days. In fact one employee group held two dress down days raising over $1,000. Churches and church groups raised over $8,000. The final result was each and every donation was vital to meeting the overall match challenge goal.

Your contributions will help provide access to dental, medical and behavioral health care for the underserved members of our communities, which includes over 30% uninsured patients being served at Lakeshore Community Health Center. Your donations now and in the future will help provide direct patient specialty care and dental care for the uninsured and help with the purchase of needed equipment and development of programs.

Currently, Lakeshore Community Health Center has served over 1,200 patients and has a wait list of 500 individuals seeking oral health services. On behalf of those receiving services and those in need of services, the Lakeshore Community Health Center and United Way of Sheboygan County extend to each of you – A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE.
