Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters,
It’s so exciting to see God guide and lead the clinic in the direction He wants us to go!
We have been able to help many more patients get the comprehensive care they need through our partnerships with Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center (dental, mental health, and eye care), Forbes Hospital (follow up primary care, here at the clinic), and the YWCA (health insurance). With the help of the Rotary Club of Monroeville and the Standard Bank Charitable Foundation, we are hoping to launch our free flu shot program this month in the Monroeville clinic and at the Turtle Creek clinic in November. We are forming new and deepening partnerships with Mon Valley Circles (social services) and Adagio Health (free mammograms and access to comprehensive women’s health issues). God is forging so many great relationships to more effectively reach the struggling people in our communities. Through these relationships, and your generous partnership as well, we get to show the love of Jesus to so many people!
Our Purse Bash Fundraiser Luncheon is coming together. It’s going to be such a FUN event! We have so many drawings- all brand new and designer handbags and accessories– Coach, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Lily Pulitzer, Vera Bradley, and more. Tickets cost $35.00 ($40.00 at the door) and include the luncheon and all the drawings for 6 large handbags, 6 medium handbags, 1 pick-a-table, and the grand prize drawing too. We will be having separate gift basket drawings during the last hour and many games with prizes. Please come, and bring friends and family! Tickets are going fast. If you would like to attend, please call Cheryl or Eileen at 412-310-0062.
Please be praying for us. God has been leading us to provide better quality improvement care tor our patients. We are laying the foundation to be able to participate in the Free Clinic Association of PA’s Quality Improvement Measurements Initiative. We are looking to see that more of our patients go for their flu shots and mammogram screenings this year and that our patients with diabetes and hypertension will experience better outcomes in their health through the treatment they receive.
As always, you are able to help so many people through your consistent and generous support. May God bless you and keep you and shine His face upon you and give you peace.
