The Open Door Clinic was established to provide basic health care services to Chippewa County
residents who are without a health care alternative.
Open Door Clinic’s Meet to Eat fundraiser set for May 9
Go out to eat and support a good cause. On Thursday, May 9, the Open Door Clinic in Chippewa Falls will host its annual Meet to Eat for the Free Clinic event, which will feature participating local restaurants who will donate 25 percent of their sales on that day to the clinic.
Restaurants participating this year are The View, Duncan Creek, High Shores Supper Club, Chippewa Family Restaurant, Latigo and Lace, Lucy’s Delicatessen, The Lodge Saloon and Restaurant, Old Abe’s Supper Club, Horizon’s, Harpole’s Supper Club and Harm’s Way .
Community members can participate by eating out at one of the participating restaurants on May 9. Additionally, patrons can make individual contributions and then will be entered into a drawing. The grand prize is a full day pontoon rental from The Edge.
The event is made possible by the following sponsors: Northwestern Bank, St. Joseph’s Hospital, Mason Companies, Inc., Marshfield Clinic, RCU, ITW Engineered Fasteners, Gordy’s County Market, The Edge and TTM.
The Open Door Clinic receives almost all of its operational budget from local resources. There are more than 130 volunteers and one part-time paid clinic coordinator that staff the clinic each Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Downtown Chippewa Falls. Additionally, there is a “Meds Only” clinic on Mondays from 10 to noon for established clinic patients. The services are provided to Chippewa County residents who are without a health care alternative that meet the clinic’s income criteria.
