WeCare Clinic in Oconomowoc will be hosting a three week-long Personal Hygiene Item drive to benefit the Salvation Army of Waukesha County. The collections will run through October 3 during regular clinic hours, which are currently 12pm-6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“We are asking the community to join us and help fill a need that you do not often hear about. The Salvation Army helps many people in our community in a variety of ways.” explained Jon Kurozawa, Marketing Director for WeCare Clinic. “We are collecting all sorts of basic hygiene items from soap, shampoo, and toothpaste, to t-shirts, women’s products and even socks. This will allow Salvation Army to distribute these items for those in need.”WeCare will host an Open House on Saturday September 21 from 2-5pm, in conjunction with the annual Shorehaven community Open House. During the open house, WeCare Clinic will be offering free blood pressure screenings to the public and will host a flu shot clinic with the vaccinations being available for $30. Lots of surprises in store for that day as well.
In addition, WeCare Clinic has also announced a schedule of flu shot clinics open to the community through the end of October. No appointment necessary for the flu shot clinics which will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays through October 31. “Seasonal flu activity can begin as early as October, so now is the time to get vaccinated” Says Kurozawa. “Even though flu season can last until as late as May, getting the vaccine now helps protect you through the entire season.
WeCare Clinic is located at 1306 W. Wisconsin Ave, Oconomowoc; inside the Center for Life Enrichment Building at Shorehaven.
