May '20 Clinic Update

Updated: May 26, 2020

You have helped your clinic raise over $5,000 during Idaho Gives!  Thank you! We are humbled by the support we've received and so so thankful for every single penny donated so far! We will be totally honest, the past month and a half have been really hard. Your clinic has had to make difficult decisions, sit through grief, face fear about the future, and shed all expectations for what will become. We are overwhelmed by the support we've received from the community because we know we are not alone in these feelings - we know many of you are facing similar challenges. Boise Acupuncture Co-op is as much yours as it is the people who work and volunteer here. Your calls, emails, notes, and donations give us all the juju we need to persevere through this time, and for that we are eternally grateful.

There are only 2 days left in Idaho Gives! Can you make a donation today? Anything and everything helps!

Mara will no longer be punking at BAC - we will all miss her! It's so so hard to imagine Boise Acupuncture Co-op without her fun spunk, calming leadership, and compassionate heart. Mara wrote a letter to the community to share her feelings, where you can find her for future treatments, and a beautiful poem. Soak it all in by clicking below.

We Love You Mara!

We are facing some challenges in reopening your clinic. We will be doing everything we possibly can to keep you safe when we open our doors again. This means your clinic is going to look and feel a lot different when we do reopen - we will outline our new safety procedures in detail soon. In preparation for opening sometime in the next month, we are trying to stock up on some essential items we will need to ensure your safety including - face coverings, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, at least 91% isopropyl rubbing alcohol, and disinfecting wipes. If you are able to donate any of these items to your clinic, please get in touch with us.

Contact Us!

We want to hear from you! We recognize and honor that the decision to return to BAC as a patient or volunteer is a highly personal one. There is no denying we have to adapt your community acupuncture clinic significantly in the face of this pandemic. We would love to hear from you about what policies, procedures and safety measures would make you feel safe returning to your clinic. Click below to fill an anonymous survey and share your thoughts.

I have something to share!
