Savannah Fain, who is 5 years old, donated all of the proceeds from sales at her lemonade stand to the Caring Hearts clinic.

Lowes Foods in Stuart hosted a Hot dog Benefit for Caring Hearts Free Clinic of Patrick County on Saturday, June 24, selling hot dogs, chips, baked goods, and soda.  All proceeds were donated directly to the clinic to help serve the uninsured residents of Patrick County with medical services and prescriptions.

Homemade lemonade also was made and sold compliments of Savannah Fain, who donated all of her proceeds to the clinic as well.  The total profit of the benefit was more than $400.

“We could not be more thankful to have such wonderful partnerships in the community,” said Christie Fain, executive director of Caring Hearts. “Every dollar helps, and it’s wonderful people such as the employees of Lowes Foods who make it possible to continue doing the work we do and serving the community. We are forever grateful to have had this opportunity.  Also, a special thank you to Savannah for donating her hard-earned money.”

The clinic serves uninsured, indigent residents of Patrick County with much needed medical services, tests, and prescriptions.  It is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. by appointment only.  Call 276-694-3410 to schedule an appointment.
