MAGALIA, Calif. - The organization Medspire is set up at the Magalia Community Center and offering services like vision and eye care, mental health support, breathing treatments, blood sugar, and blood pressure checks, and free toiletries.

Volunteers tell said that no ID or appointment is needed and they are seeing anyone who is seeking non-emergency medical care.

One volunteer shares why providing these services for people means so much

“The volunteers that are a apart of this organization, we thrive on being able to provide services in times where it is like high need," said volunteer Mary Lisawood. "We want to be able to do as much good as we can for this community because we hold it so dear to our hearts and it kind of refills our cups sort of speak because when everything is feeling really depleted, being able to help people kind of re-energizes us to keep doing the work that we do.”

The organization has doctors who worked at Feather River Hospital, and work with nurses who are apart of the nursing program at Chico State.

Lisawood said these nurses and doctors usually see up to 24 patients in a day.

The organization plans to offer these free medical care services once a month until no longer needed.

Lisawood said that they will be at the Magalia Community Center until 2 p.m. but will still be offering their telehealth services. 

The organization also plans to set up their next medical center on Oct. 20 at the Magalia Community Church.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
