Valley Non-Profit hosts free medical clinic despite stolen equipment


MOST. [D0]BREAK 3 MEGAN JUST A FEW DAYS AGO… LIFE HOPE CENTERS….A NON PROFIT IN VISALIA WAS A TARGET OF THEFT… BUT TODAY THANKS TO AMAZON PRIME… THEY WERE ABLE TO RESUME THEIR FREE MEDICAL AND DENTAL SERVICES. ON WEDNESDAY… SOMEONE STOLE TWO AIR COMPRESSORS… WHICH ARE VITAL IN PROVIDING FREE DENTAL CARE… ORGANIZERS REACHED OUT TO THE COMMUNITY… BUT AS KSEE24’S MEDERIOS BABB TELLS US… IT WAS FREE TWO DAY SHIPPING THAT CAME IN CLUTCH. [D4]MEDICAL EQUIPMENT THEFT-PKG MARIA GRIJALVA, TULARE “I NEED THIS… AGAIN BECAUSE I CANNOT AFFORD OUT OF POCKET FOR MY EYES…” MARIA GRIJALVA WAS ONE OF THE MANY PEOPLE IN VISALIA WHO RECEIVED FREE MEDICAL… VISION.. AND DENTAL CARE FROM LIFE HOPE CENTERS ON SUNDAY… CLINIC DIRECTOR EDWARD URBINA SAYS THE EVENT ALMOST DIDN’T HAPPEN AFTER TWO AIR COMPRESSORS WERE STOLLEN ON WEDNESDAY… EDWARD URBINA, CLINIC DIRECTOR “WITHOUT THE AIR COMPRESSORS WE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RUN OUR CLINIC.” THE ORGANIZERS ASKED THE COMMUNITY FOR DONATIONS… NONE CAME IN… AS THE EVENT CAME CLOSER… THEY HAD TO TAKE MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS… MEDERIOS BABB “THEY ORDERED THESE TWO COMPRESSORS … LUCKILY BECAUSE OF AMAZON PRIME THEY WERE ABLE TO GET THEM BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON.” “WE WERE ABLE TO GET COMPRESSORS IN TWO DAYS… THAT WAS FABULOUS…” AND WHILE THESE PIECES OF EQUIPMENT MIGHT NOT LOOK IMPORTANT… IT IS ESSENTIAL IN OPPERATING THE DENTAL DRILL… WATER PIC AND SUCTION TOOLS… ALL OF WHICH ARE NEEDED WHEN PULLING TEETH… AND FILLING CAVITYS. RICHARD WELLS, VOLUNTEER DENTIST “A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE HAVEN’T SEEN A DENTIST IN A LONG WHILE… AND THEY ARE COMING IN AND THEY HAVE HAD PAIN AND DISCOMFORT FOR A LONG TIME AND WE ARE ABLE TO ELIVATE THEIR PAIN AND GET THEM ON THE ROAD TO BETTER DENTAL HEALTH…” AT THE END OF THE DAY THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT… HELPING OTHERS… AND WHILE THE NON PROFIT HAS A TEMPORARY FIX FOR NOW… URBINA HOPES THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE COMPRESSORS WILL FIND IT IN THEIR HEART TO GIVE THEM BACK… MEDERIOS BABB KSEE24 LNTM… MEGAN NEXT… A SCARY SIGHT IN SANGER, AS AUDITIONS KICKED
