The Orangeburg-Calhoun Free Medical Clinic will be receiving $5,000 from the City of Orangeburg.

During Tuesday’s council meeting, Orangeburg City Council voted 6-1 in favor of donating $5,000 to the medical clinic.

The clinic serves citizens who are medically uninsured and meet other requirements.

Councilman Jerry Hannah voted against the donation, noting the possibility that a larger donation could have been made.

Jeanne Gue, who represents the clinic, appeared before council in January, seeking monetary support from the city.
