CLEARLAKE, Calif. – On Wednesday St. Helena Hospital Clearlake today received a $25,000 contribution to assist with their Live Well program.

The grant, which was given to the nonprofit organization through the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program, will be used to provide new expanded space for the many educational groups and outside community organizations throughout the Lake County region.

The new area will be used as a learning center for group meetings, one of the most important aspects of the Live Well program.

“The generosity of Walmart is greatly appreciated,” said Kimberly Tangermann, associate director of family health centers, St. Helena Hospital Clearlake. “The Live Well program values Walmart’s contribution to evolving the health of our community.”

Since opening its doors in early 2011, the Live Well program at St. Helena Hospital’s Clearlake Family Health Center has helped thousands to overcome or avoid chronic illness.

Live Well emphasizes the whole-person approach to chronic health issues. Based on St. Helena’s core value of treating mind, body and spirit together, Live Well incorporates patient education, physical conditioning, diet and lifestyle choices, and staff and peer support to help patients become active partners in their own health care and make meaningful life changes.

“The Walmart Foundation is very pleased to support St. Helena Hospital’s Live Well program, and is committed to helping those in need in the communities we serve,” said Clearlake Assistant Store Manager Coleen Lee. “We are hopeful that this grant will help St Helena Hospital Clearlake educate our community about healthy living so we can all live better.”

Live Well is located at the St Helena Family Health Center at 15230 Lakeshore Drive, Clearlake. For more information about Live Well, call 707-995-4545.

To be considered for support, perspective grantee organizations must submit applications through the Walmart Foundation State Giving Program’s online grant application.

Applicants must have a current 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status in order to meet the program’s minimum eligibility criteria. Additional information about the program’s funding guidelines and application are available online at www.walmartfoundation.org/stategiving.

In 2010, in California, Walmart, Sam’s Club and the Walmart Foundation awarded more than $29.1 million in cash and in-kind donations to local organizations in the communities they serve.
