Helen Scott, executive director of Healing Hands Health Center in Bristol and chairwoman of the community host group for the RAM clinic, said donations will help cover a number of expenses associated with the event.
These include medical and dental supplies, as well as tents, tables, chairs and food. Patients and volunteers receive up to three meals a day when they participate in the clinic.
“We have received a number of generous donations, and we greatly appreciate this support,” Scott said. “However, there are still additional opportunities for companies and individuals to leave a legacy by backing this meaningful humanitarian effort.”
This year’s clinic, to be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 3-5, will again help meet the needs of thousands of medically underserved patients in the region. Gates will open at 6 a.m., each day.
