The Coppell Leo Club held a bake sale in front of Ace Hardware on March 18th to raise funds for portable nebulizers for the Primary Care Clinic of North Texas. The clinic treats low income uninsured patients. Leo Club Vice President Isabel Mascarenhas knew from volunteering at the clinic that there was a significant need for portable nebulizers. Low-income patients with asthma can use these machines as a low cost treatment for asthma symptoms.
Leo Club President Veronica Nguyen was very impressed with the generosity of shoppers at Ace Hardware. “Once people heard about the opportunity to help provide nebulizers for low income patients, they were very willing to help out,” she said. “We also appreciate the support from Ace Hardware.”
