Dear Friends and Supporters,
Our Macon Volunteer Clinic family trusts you and yours had a joyous Thanksgiving celebration!
We have much to be thankful for in this 20th anniversary year. Our community has sustained us through philanthropy and voluntarism these two decades because they believe in our purpose. Without you, MVC would not exist and the heart felt testimonials you read in these newsletters would not have happened. Thank you for the trust you place in us to care for our vulnerable neighbors.
Our 2023 Giving Tuesday campaign which just concluded is a testament to your generosity. We set a $20,000 goal for a very specific purpose – to equip an eye clinic at MVC. And you came through! An amazing $16,988 was raised! The gifts are still trickling in, and we are confident the remaining $3,000 will be gifted in 2023's remaining weeks.
We are vigorous advocates for our patients. We know that the gift of health is priceless. We are so gratified when a new patient is enrolled at MVC, because we know we are relieving a huge burden. Once under our care, our patients return to caring for their families and contributing to the middle Georgia community. We all benefit when everyone has access to quality medical care.
I am so proud and grateful for our team. They are committed and compassionate. They know we are privileged to be the hands and feet that carry out the Macon Volunteer Clinic mission. Thank you Dr. Astin, Mara, Dona, Trish, Sammeria, Julia, Betty, Cherish, Shardae, Karen and Terri. Your talents and skills shine through each day and buoy the spirits of all who intersect with our work.
As we enter these closing weeks of 2023, sometimes frenetic with activities and celebrations, we invite you to invest in the life and health of our working, uninsured and financially challenged neighbors. You can make a gift online here – and we promise that each dollar donated has an impressive return on investment.
