The board of directors, patients and staff of the Will-Grundy Medical Clinic (WGMC) are grateful to the Rotary Club of Joliet for a recent grant of $6,212.00. The grant was used to provide the Clinic with a much-needed professional interior painting. Today 213 East Cass Street is a bright, clean and safe environment for our patients whether they are in the waiting room or an examination room.
For almost 25 years, the clinic has been a beacon of hope for the uninsured by providing free health care to those who are most in need. But, we don’t do it alone and the Rotary Club grant is a shining example of the support we receive from the community.
As the Rotary Club of Joliet moves into its centennial year, we applaud their commitment and generosity. With their initial project, they purchased musical instruments and band uniforms for Joliet Township High School’s first band. For nearly a century, these dedicated men and women have been an asset to our community. They have provided programs and services which included hospitality for traveling servicemen, hosting exchange students and providing scholarships. Their generous funding continues to have an impact on local social service agencies, whether they provide a van for transportation for the Salvation Army, playground equipment for United Cerebral Palsy, furnish a group home at Easter Seals or painting for the Free Clinic. Joliet is a lucky community to count the Rotary Club as an ardent supporter.
