The Reuler Family Fund Needs Your Support./in Frontpage Article, News, Uncategorized/by Thomas Mowe
Wallace clinics are places full of hope and perseverance, even as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on into its ninth month…
…A single mom of three, driving daily from a COVID-positive homeless shelter to a parking spot with Wi-Fi access and a nearby outlet, to ensure her children could do their schoolwork.
…A veteran settling in to new housing and learning, for the first time, how to prepare healthy, nutritious meals for himself.
…Countless patients caregiving to COVID-positive members of their family, while enduring their own COVID symptoms.
Families already experiencing dire poverty and health inequities before this crisis are now faced with impossible choices between working and caring for their families. If they have a job, they often feel unsafe there, and know they risk bringing COVID back to their families. But many are the only source of income for their family, and can’t afford to stay at home. Some patients who have lost income find themselves choosing between groceries and medication.
One tool Wallace uses to support families during this crisis is the Reuler Family Fund for Patient Support. Named after Wallace founder Dr. Jim Reuler, the Reuler Family Fund makes sure modest, non-medical needs never stand between our patients and good health.
Recently, the fund has been used to buy:
- Winter clothes for a family on a waiting list for housing
- Gift cards for groceries, when patients’ meal budgets run out
- A portable stove providing heat and the ability to cook meals for a family living in a car
- Soap, Purell, masks and disinfectant wipes for COVID-19 “Patient Care Packages”
- Gas cards, taxi rides and bus tickets for patients unable to make it to their appointments
Unfortunately, the need for emergency, short-term assistance is greater than ever, and will only grow as winter comes. COVID-19 has made so many things harder, yet Wallace must remain an open door to all who need help.
Will you help us meet this challenge, and make a gift to Wallace today? Your dollars will be put to work immediately through the Reuler Fund, giving Wallace families a lifeline during this difficult time.
Thank you for your support!
