FASWVA and Aetna Feed the Hungry at RAM Clinic in Wise

Feeding America Southwest Virginia and Aetna recently teamed up to provide non-perishable food boxes to patients attending the Remote Area Medical Clinic in Wise, Virginia.

Thanks to sponsorship from Aetna, 1,500 boxes of food including canned vegetables, rice, beans, cereal and other staples were distributed. In additional to their financial sponsorship, Aetna sent a team of employees to help distribute boxes during the three-day RAM clinic.

The Wise RAM clinic provides free healthcare services including dental cleanings and fillings, eye exams, mental health services, women’s health exams and general medical exams, to an estimated 2,000 patients each year.
