During our series “How to Hug a Vampire” we’re encouraging our eGroups to sign up and serve our outreach partners and send photos. We love this one, and if you look closely – you can see these blood-givers are wearing fangs!
You can sport your bloodsucking behavior this Friday too as we serve with Matthews Free Medical Clinic.
Volunteer leader Heidi McClure says she gets “instant gratification” serving with the clinic. “When I volunteer, it is for people like you and me that need my help that live here in the Charlotte and Matthews area,” she says.
The Matthews Free Medical Clinic (MFMC) is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide free healthcare to underprivileged patients. The clinic provides acute and chronic primary care as well as women’s, psychiatry, orthopedic, and pharmacy clinics. MFMC is funded by grants and private donations and is primarily kept running through the faithful service of many volunteers.
Patients at MFMC must be recertified every twelve months to ensure that the resources provided are given to people with no other options concerning their healthcare. Volunteers are needed for both greeting patients and reviewing necessary paperwork. Join us as we walk alongside our strategic outreach partner and bring life-saving services to our neighbors.
McClure says, “They are so appreciative, and it is a great way to show them God’s love and get involved in something bigger than my daily problems. I know my time helped someone and that volunteering made a difference in someone’s life today.”
There are two opportunities to serve MFMC – this Friday June 1 and on Monday June 4. Click the link below to sign up and serve!
