June 2017 Mission of the Month – Arlington Free Clinic
The Arlington Free Clinic (AFC) provides free, high-quality medical care to low-income, uninsured Arlington County adults through the generosity of donors and volunteers. All patients livein Arlington County and have incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Although most of their patients work, their jobs do not include access to health insurance. In recent years, an increasing number of new patients came to the AFC after losing their jobs and their insurance.
You can give to the mission of the month by using the special mission offering envelopes in the pews, online at www.flcva.org, through the GivePlus Church app, or by scanning the QR code on the back of this bulletin.
The Clinic always needs licensed medical providers and Spanish speakers to interpret for patients during appointments with the doctor. Their patients also rely on the clinic for distribution of basic toiletries. A collection bin for toiletries can be found in the Fellowship Hall.
