Crider Center, Ruby Tuesday partner to provide hope for community

Posted on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 10:58 am

 Crider Health Center and Ruby Tuesday are partnering to provide hope for healthier lives to those in our community who need it most.  On May 9th and 10th, diners who visit Ruby Tuesday in Wentzville will have 20 percent of their purchase donated to Crider Health Center simply by presenting a flyer to their server.  Flyers can be found on the event page of Crider’s website at  All donations will fund the various programs and services Crider provides for underserved individuals living in St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren and Franklin Counties.

 “We are so very grateful to Ruby Tuesday for helping us provide hope for healthier lives to those in our community who are uninsured, underinsured, receiving Medicaid/Medicare or living at or below poverty,” said Pam Imboden, marketing and development manager at Crider Health Center.

For those in our community who are living in poverty or do not have access to health insurance, choosing between taking their child to the doctor or purchasing groceries for their family is a decision that can weigh heavily on the minds of parents and place a great deal of strain on an already tight budget.  For those who are dependent on Medicaid or Medicare, the process of finding a provider can often prove to be time consuming and difficult.

“Crider Health Center provides top-notch, quality healthcare to those in the community who need it most,” said Imboden.  “Without our services, many in our community would not have the opportunity to have their healthcare needs addressed causing them to give up all hope of living fuller, more productive, and healthier lives.  We are happy to joining forces with Ruby Tuesday to provide hope.”

Making a difference in the lives of others is as easy as 1-2-3!
