WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Twin Bridges Canoe & Campground made a donation to the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation. The funds were raised during an ATV weekend event held at the campground to benefit OMC Behavioral Healthcare’s (BHC) efforts toward suicide awareness and prevention. Located on the banks of Missouri’s North Fork River, Twin Bridges Canoe & Campground provides high quality floating activities in a family oriented environment.

“We really appreciate the willingness of Twin Bridges to support the fight against suicide, “said Richard McGee, OMC Behavioral Healthcare Director. “We provide a 24-hour crisis hotline and these funds will be used to promote community awareness of this service.”
