Planned Parenthood Receives $6,600 Check From New Chaffee County Group

A com­plete­ly brand new group meet­ing for the first time has decid­ed that its first dona­tion would be giv­en to the Rocky Moun­tains Planned Parenthood.

The group, Chaf­fee Coun­ty Women Who Care, agreed that a $6,600 check would be giv­en to the cen­ter to help with STD test­ing at Sal­i­da Health Center. 

Health cen­ter man­ag­er Shel­ley Schrein­er talked with the Chaf­fee Coun­ty Women Who Care group about the need for addi­tion­al test­ing and treat­ment as well as the ded­i­ca­tion of Planned Par­ent­hood to offer every­body the best qual­i­ty care they can pro­vide. Planned Par­ent­hood pro­vides test­ing and treat­ing to both patients and their part­ners, she said.

With the finan­cial assis­tance from Chaf­fee Coun­ty Women Who Care, patients can con­tin­ue to get the health care ser­vices they need. 

Schrein­er said they appre­ci­ate the dona­tion giv­en by the Women Who Care group and the con­tin­u­ous ded­i­ca­tion Chaf­fee Coun­ty shows for the community’s health and mak­ing sure every­body has access to repro­duc­tive and sex­u­al health care, regard­less of what it is.

The Chaf­fee Coun­ty Women Who Care group meets every three months, where mem­bers put names in a bas­ket for non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions or projects they feel deserve fund­ing. Three names are then drawn, and pre­sen­ta­tions heard about why they deserve the fund­ing. Once the Q&A ses­sion is over, mem­bers cast their vote to deter­mine which one gets the mon­ey. The one with the most wins and each mem­ber donates $100 to the cause.
