Eaton gives to Faith Clinic

AMERICUS — Recently, the Eaton Manufacturing plant in Americus found a way to give back to the community during this season of giving.
As they were organizing their first aid room they identified an opportunity to donate over 200 medical supplies to the Sumter Faith Clinic. This is a free clinic, open two days a week and staffed by volunteer medical providers. They provide care to the uninsured and those who are within a certain percentage of the poverty line. Donations like this help to defer cost and sustain its mission for the people of Sumter County.
Interim Plant Manager, Dwight Jones, said, “At Eaton, we understand the importance of organizations like the Sumter Faith Clinic to stand in the gap for people in need. In addition to this donation, our employees give willingly to the United Way, Toys for Tots, the American Cancer Society and many other organizations like the Sumter Faith Clinic. We are always proud to be able to help our neighbors.”
It was just over three years ago that Eaton Corporation announced it completed its acquisition of Cooper Industries. The acquisition combined Eaton and Cooper into a new, premier global power management company named Eaton Corporation. Although it may be a different name today, the employees at Eaton remain just as dedicated to being good neighbors to the people of their community as ever before.
In October 2011, nurse practitioners Mary Wysochansky and Anna Stinchcum founded and opened the Sumter Faith Clinic.  They are always seeking financial support, volunteers and donations in kind. To find out more how you can give to the clinic you can find them on Facebook.
