To mark its 75th anniversary, Springfield Clinic is the one giving the gifts.  Chief Administrative Officer Mark Kuhn says the communities it serves are the ones who have made it successful.

“We want to celebrate our anniversary by giving back to the community, especially those who are in need, and can describe that need to make it worthwhile to the recipient” says Kuhn.

Each month in 2014, Springfield Clinic will select one nominee organization and help it fulfill its wish list.  Kuhn says the “Mission: Give75″ is open to any non-profit or charitable group and anyone may make the nomination.  Nominations will only be accepted through an on-line form at the clinic’s website .
