Rosa Clark is an Angel
In the eyes of the S.C. Secretary of State, Oconee’s only free medical clinic is an Angel. Mark Hammond, Secretary of State, announces a list of his Scrooges and Angels for 2012. And this year he includes the 30-year old Rosa Clark Medical Clinic in Seneca as an angel, based on a review of financial reports and nominations by the public. To be an Angel, the charity must have devoted 80% or more of its total expenditures to charitable programs, among other requirements. Hammond designated Scrooge to a charitable organization that fails to spend a high percentage of its collection on charity. His office found that the Fraternal Order of Police Tri-County Lodge #3 in Hanahan designated only 4.1% of its expenditures to program services.
