Volunteers make the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic a safety net clinic in the heart of Eau Claire. Please see the recent volunteer highlight in the Check-Up, our bi-annual Clinic newsletter below.
The clinic’s recent move could not have been accomplished without the help of dedicated volunteers like Sue and Larry Tienor. A retired registered nurse with more than 40 years of experience at Luther/Mayo, Sue started volunteering in 2013 and later encouraged her husband to join in.
Office and volunteer manager Charlotte Hudgins said Sue has served as a dispensary nurse, volunteer event planner, immunization records keeper and volunteer committee member. “And those are just her formal roles,” Charlotte said. “She’s dedicated, inspiring, full of good ideas, a fantastic recruiter of volunteers, donors, in-kind gifts, and a cheerleader for CVFC’s mission.”
“Larry, an engineer and retired vice president of National Presto Industries, has willingly stepped up to help with all kinds of projects, events, and odds and ends,” said Charlotte. “During our move, he showed up many days with a hand power drill to help take down and put up new equipment. We are blessed to have both Sue and Larry as part of the CVFC family!”
“It’s been a labor of love,” said Sue. “We are happy with all the dedication we see with the employees and volunteers at CVFC and feel proud to be a part of it.”
