Volunteers Needed



From Michael McGilbra, Associate Pastor at Ralph Avenue:
On July 27th, we will be hosting a Back to School Clinic. We are looking for churches to partner with us for this event. Mainly, we just need volunteers to assist in the flow of the clinic and for security purposes. Any and all other types of assistance would be greatly appreciated as well.
Recently, I went to a clinic in Shelbyville. Their clinic had over 30 partnering churches!  I would love to see that done here as well.
Last year, about 80 of the 150 kids that went through our medical screening received a sports physical. Approximately 150 received dental supplies and 70 took advantage of the dental screening services. Overall, we served about 500 people. The clinic lasted from 10-2 but by 11:30 all the backpacks were claimed.  Many people left, but every person who stayed took either advantage of the dental/medical screenings or came through to get food and have fun.  Check out last year’s event on our Facebook page
As of now, we have secured the following for this year's event:
·       1 Dentist
·       1 RN
·       1 Nurse from Galen College of Nursing
·       1 Potential Optometrist
We are praising the Lord for the above things but are still in need of the things below:
·       Barbers
·       Cosmetologists
·       Audiologist
·       Optometrist
·       Other Services
·       A wholesale vendor to purchase 250 backpacks and school supplies
·       VOLUNTEERS – to assist with a shoe drive
·       VOLUNTEERS – to assist with security
·       VOLUNTEERS – to assist with the flow of the clinic
We are asking volunteers to arrive by 9:15 am on the day of the event. If you or a group from your church can help, please let us know.
God Bless!
