MARTIN COUNTY --
Stuart's Volunteers in Medicine Clinic now has $100,000 more in its coffers thanks to a donation from the Frances Langford Foundation.
The check was presented Dec.11 at the office of the Frances Langford Foundation by attorneys Evans Crary Jr., co-trustee for the foundation and Mike Crary. Mr. Crary serves on the board of directors of the Friends of Volunteers in Medicine Clinic, the fundraising arm of the clinic.
VIM Clinic serves the health and wellness needs of community members who are not eligible for any government programs, are not covered by insurance and have household income levels below 200 percent of the poverty level.
Quality and compassionate medical care is provided by volunteer medical personnel working in concert with existing medical resources and with the support of the community.
"Volunteers in Medicine is a very worthy cause," said Mr. Crary. "Every dollar donated buys a multiple of dollars' worth of free medical care for the needy in our community."
