Congrats to Daily Point of Light Recipient Ken Cromer: During National Health Center Week, NACHC and Points of Light partnered to honor individuals and/or groups who have volunteered for or at Community Health Centers. Today, we congratulate Daily Point of Light recipient Ken Cromer from Lorain County Health and Dentistry. Ken, a member of the Lions Club from Lorain and Ohio District 13b, is "selfless and committed to our vision clinic and Health Center," said Stephanie Wiersma of Lorain County Health and Dentistry. "We would not have opened our full time vision clinic last October if they hadn't raised $257,000 specifically for us."
