Spa at McCann Open House to benefit Schuylkill Alliance for Healthcare
The Mini Services offered at the Spa Open House include: Chair Massages, Foot Reflexology and Massage, Mini Sinus Facial Massage and Hands and Arms Massage. The cost for each service is $5 and all profits from the Spa Open House go to the Schuylkill Alliance.
Schuylkill Alliance for Healthcare Access is a non- profit organization which links uninsured Schuylkill County Residents to affordable healthcare services and medicines. The program targets working individuals who do not qualify for the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid or Medicare, and who cannot afford to purchase health insurance. Once an individual registers with the Schuylkill Alliance for Healthcare Access for a nominal fee, he or she has access to a network of over 150 medical providers, including hospitals and testing facilities, across Schuylkill County who have agreed to accept the Medicaid Rate for services. To date, the Schuylkill Alliance has provided over $10 million in healthcare services and medicines to its clients. For more information, visit the website at http://schuylkillhca.org.
“McCann has chosen Schuylkill Alliance for Healthcare Access as the recipient of profits from the SPA Open House because it is a great organization that benefits many McCann students,” said Shannon Brennan, Campus Director. Judith Schweich, Executive Director of the Schuylkill Alliance for Health Care Access, said “The Alliance does not have a consistent funding source, so fundraising events like this help enable the organization to continue to serve the un-insured residents of Schuylkill County.”
In addition to the Spa events, the campus will also be hosting a Mini Career Fair focusing on employment opportunities in the Criminal Justice and Phlebotomy fields. Local employers with job openings for Phlebotomists and Criminal Justice graduates will be on site from 5-7pm. The event is open to the public.
