nTelos Wireless Makes $5,000 Donation To Charlottesville Free Clinic

WAYNESBORO, VA – nTelos Wireless, the Virginia-based provider of high-speed, dependable nationwide wireless services, today announced that it has donated $5,000 to the Charlottesville Free Clinic (CFC).

The donation will support the organization’s mission to provide free health care services for lowincome, uninsured families in the greater Charlottesville community.

“As a Virginia-based company, we focus many of our resources on supporting organizations that are making a difference in the communities where we have employees, neighbors, and customers,” said Conrad Hunter, president of nTelos Wireless. “We have supported the Charlottesville Free Clinic for several years and will continue to support the organization as it strives to accomplish its mission.”

In 2010, the CFC treated 2,829 patients with 7,615 visits, scheduled 747 referral appointments and dispensed 28,396 prescriptions. The clinic delivered nearly $3 million dollars of health care services and saved our local hospitals an estimated $7.6 million dollars.

The CFC is a nonprofit organization that depends on donations and fundraising events to cover its annual operating expenses.

The donation was made during a press conference announcing nTelos Wireless as the naming rights partner for the downtown pavilion, now known as nTelos Wireless Pavilion.
