SUMMER 2016 NEWSLETTER
Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters,
We are so happy to report that we EXCEEDED our financial goal for the 2016 Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser! Praise the Lord! It was a HUGE success! It was a night full of good food and fellowship, many basket drawings and silent auctions, and an update on all that’s happening in the clinic. So many people make it possible for us to raise half of our operating budget each year through this one event…our volunteers, local businesses and organizations, and YOU! Thank you so much!
This past May, there was a young couple in the Monroeville clinic with their small kids. The husband was out of work. They were without insurance. They were stunned that we didn’t expect them to pay for the medical care they received that evening. Tears came to their eyes as we explained that if they took their prescriptions to the Giant Eagle Pharmacy, CVS or Shop n Save in Monroeville, the clinic would pay for their prescriptions. When they found out that we were having a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser the next evening, they bought tickets for the whole family. I saw them at the dinner, and they were having a blast! What a joy!
It says in God’s Word, “Dear ones, let us not love merely with word or with tongue but in action and in practice and sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words.” (1 John 3:18)
Thank you for partnering with us, in love and generosity and sacrifice, making it possible for us to show practical acts of love to individuals and families who are struggling and to provide much needed medical care when they need it. Together, we show the love of Christ to each one of them by meeting their practical needs. What a blessing! Thank you!
Many, many blessings to you and your families,
Director of Clinic Operations
