The Everett Clinic received Senior Services of Snohomish County's Powerful Partner Award. Everett Clinic CEO Rick Cooper and Dr. James Lee, who serves on Senior Services' Board of Director accepted the award on behalf of the Clinic. Senior Services CEO Jim Steinbruck talked about why the Clinic was honored.
“We want to recognize organizations that we’ve reached out to or who have reached out to us. These powerful partnerships have a significant impact on improving the lives of those who depend on us for their independence and quality of life.”
“When Everett Clinic says they want to serve ‘the whole you,’ they really mean it. We’ve been working closely with them at every level. It’s an organization that really gets it."
“They have wonderful employees that have brought us truckloads of pet food to deliver with Meals on Wheels so seniors don’t worry about sharing their meals with their furry friends. They created a fundraising opportunity where employees paid $5 each to wear jeans on Fridays with the proceeds going to Senior Services. They have also put together hundreds of personal care kits for seniors.”
“Everett Clinic’s history of giving back to the community through volunteerism and financial support is part of their culture and their DNA. They partner with our nutrition staff to provide chronic disease self-management classes. They also provide much needed financial support with grants and annual sponsorships.”
