Free Clinic to host fundraiser

-A A +A

Volunteers, staff and patients of The Free Clinic of the Twin Counties will host the monthly all-you-can-eat breakfast fundraiser at Applebee's in Galax on Saturday from 8-10 a.m.
The breakfast includes pancakes, sausage and drink for $5 per person. Take-outs are available.
Last month, the breakfast fundraiser had the lowest number of attendees since it started.
This is an opportunity to help people in need. One breakfast purchased will buy one prescription for one patient.
The Free Clinic is supported mainly by donations from churches, individuals, businesses, a few local foundations, fundraising and a portion comes from the state to pay for prescriptions and to expand health care services.
The clinic provides free medical care and prescription assistance to residents of the Twin County area. The current average cost for prescriptions provided is $2,000 per month.
