Truth’s Community Clinic, a Lawrenceville non-profit organization, has been awarded a $1,250 grant from Rotary Club of Gwinnett County. Scarlett Rigsby, director of the clinic, accepted the grant from Rotary President Marlon Allen at the club’s May 10th meeting.

According to Rigsby, the grant will be used to help defray the cost of eye exams for the clinic’s diabetic patients. Truth’s Community Clinic provides non-emergency primary care to low-income uninsured families and does not accept insurance or Medicaid.

“This grant from Rotary Club of Gwinnett County will help us meet a growing need for eye care among our diabetic patient population,” said Rigsby. “I’m grateful to Rotary for supporting the work we do and for providing us with much-needed funding to expand this program.”

Each year, Rotary Club of Gwinnett County awards grants to several local non-profit organizations. Grants must align with Rotary’s six areas of focus: conflict resolution; disease prevention and treatment; water and sanitation; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and economic and community development.

“We are delighted to award this grant to Truth’s Community Clinic,” said Paige Havens, chairperson for Rotary Club of Gwinnett’s Charitable Giving Committee. “The organization’s mission aligns with several of Rotary’s initiatives, and the services the clinic offers enables the most marginalized residents in our area to receive quality medical and dental care.”

Truth’s Community Clinic is a faith-based non-profit organization located at 250 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville. It serves the Gwinnett County communities of Lawrenceville, Dacula, Auburn and Buford with non-emergency primary care. For more information, visit www.truthsclinic.org.
