Harrah's Foundation grants $50,000 to River Cities Community Clinic
The River Cities Communities Clinic (RCCC), a non-profit community health center serving a large portion of the Tri-State area, has received a $50,000 grant from the Harrah’s Foundation. The funding will assist the RCCC in providing ongoing medical care for patients in the community who are uninsured or under-insured.
“Our latest support from Harrah’s shows the importance of RCCC as a growing, needed community health center for primary care,” said Jennifer Genua-McDaniel, RCCC’s executive director. “Harrah’s Laughlin and the Harrah’s Foundation support goes back to the planning stages before we opened. As we mark our second anniversary the needs for a quality community health center serving Bullhead City and the surrounding area are demonstrated every day.”
This is RCCC’s second $50,000 grant from the Harrah’s Foundation. Previously Harrah’s Laughlin contributed $30,000 to the community health center. And Harrah’s HERO (Harrah’s Entertainment Reaching Out) Committee helped remodel additional office space with materials donated by Home Depot and Lowe’s in Bullhead City.
“Thanks to the help from Harrah’s Foundation and other generous donors we’ll be able to announce out next exciting development shortly,” Genua-McDaniel noted.
The Harrah’s Foundation is a private foundation established to provide financial support to qualified organizations. Created in 2002 as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to communities, the Foundation is funded by Harrah’s properties and supports reinvestment programs in communities where our employees live and work. The Harrah’s Foundation focuses the majority of its funding in three strategic categories: senior citizens, education initiatives and civic programs.
More than $900,000 in initial planning, startup and operating grants came from the Legacy Foundation, making it the largest single underwriter so far of RCCC’s community health center. Last year RCCC received an $80,000 federal grant to help expand medical services, one of only four grants for community health clinics in Arizona, the only one in western Arizona and one of only 48 nationwide. The Clinic has also received other grants and in-kind support from Wells Fargo, Bullhead City Cares, Downey Savings (now US Bank), Bullhead City Morning Kiwanis, Aquarius Casino, Rotary Club of Laughlin, Colorado River and Mohave Mesa Kiwanis, Sam’s Club and Tropicana Express, plus a number of local businesses and individuals.
RCCC accepts most major private insurance plans as well as Medicare and AHCCCS (Arizona Medicaid). It also has a sliding fee scale for patients without insurance.
