The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that El Dorado Community Health Centers (EDCHC) is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. EDCHC is a primary care center that serves El Dorado County and provides a full range of family practice services.
Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.
“We will be using the grant to address unmet health needs for patients not covered by insurance and who would otherwise not receive the service/medical supplies,” said Terri Stratton, Executive Director of El Dorado Community Health Centers.
“It gives us great pride to give this grant to El Dorado Community Health Centers,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”
In 2017, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000. Lyon’s Placerville chose EDCHC to be the recipient of their grant.
