TOMBALL, TX - TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries was recently presented with a $5,000 donation from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

TOMAGWA, which represents "Tomball, Magnolia, & Waller," provides assistance to low-income, uninsured families, who need health care and reside in southwest Montgomery, southeast Waller and northwest Harris Counties. It is a nominal-fee, comprehensive family practice clinic that provides medical services regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, religion affiliation or the ability to pay.

TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries was founded 20 years ago from the concern of local residents who witnessed a man die in Magnolia from an infection and a little girl in Tomball who lost her hearing due to recurring ear infections. These people did not seek medical treatment due to lack of medical insurance and inadequate finances to pay for services. For more information about TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries visit

Woodforest Charitable Foundation and Woodforest National Bank are pleased support this outstanding organization."
