For the fifth year in a row, Fry's Food Stores through their Giving Hope A Hand Campaign has donated funds locally to the Yavapai County's Community Health Center of Yavapai (CHCY). This year's donation of $7,000 will be used to provide breast diagnostic services for uninsured and low-income patients throughout the county.
"Elaine Martin-Stomel, FNP and Jane Chapman, PA, who is also the Reproductive Health Program Manager, both provide well women services to the patients of CHCY. The donation from Fry's will help provide well-women services that include a clinical breast examination, cervical screening and a screening mammogram." said Peggy Nies, Director of the Community Health Center.
The Community Health Center of Yavapai is excited to partner with Fry's in the fight against breast cancer. Knowing the toll this illness takes on the lives of Yavapai County residents, Fry's is continuing its commitment to assist residents and their families with diagnostic services, breast cancer treatment and resources they need.
Funds raised by the annual Fry's Giving Hope a Hand Campaign go to assist dozens of local organizations in fighting breast cancer in communities across the country - supporting research projects, funding mammograms and educational outreach, and assisting local support groups for women and families. All of the funds are spent in the communities where Fry's customers and associates live and work.
