Generous gifts and dedicated volunteers made it possible for the Free Clinic to help local individuals and families who needed assistance with food, shelter and health care.
Nearly 80 percent of funds to the Free Clinic comes from private philanthropy – including individuals, family foundations and more – in our community. This year, 419 people made a donation to the Free Clinic for the first time, and it’s our hope that their support will continue over the years. Our monthly giving program, called Helping Hands, saw 86 people who made a commitment to support the Free Clinic. Those who participate in Helping Hands give an average of $71.92 per month, which helps support our programs.
Volunteers also have an incredible positive impact on our organization. More than 350 volunteers donated 33,255 hours of service, which equates to 17 full-time staff members. Most of our volunteers commit to shifts each week, and their volunteer service includes packing and sorting food, providing medical care, mentoring individuals in recovery, and much more.
