Mission Box 
This week's mission box supports ACORN (The Alachua County Organization for Rural Needs, Inc). The ACORN Clinic is a nationally recognized program that provides low-cost medical, dental and social services care to residents of north central Florida. The clinic is able to provide high quality health and dental care at low costs due in large part to the exceptional medical and dental community of Gainesville and outlying areas. Members of this extraordinary community regularly volunteer their time to help the disadvantaged rural residents of North Central Florida.
