Since the Presbyterian Medical Care Mission began, the support of volunteers has been vital to the ministry’s ability to care for those in need.
Each week, more than 50 volunteers give their time to operate the Medical Clinic’s office. When patients call to make medical appointments, the voice that greets them belongs to a volunteer. When patients arrive at the Mission, they are received by the smiling face of a volunteer. Volunteers pull charts for the nurses and physicians, and a volunteer receives each patient’s payment at the end of a visit. In addition to providing warmth and a personal touch, the volunteers help keep administration costs at under 10 percent of the Mission’s budget.
If you are willing to give an afternoon or a morning a week to serve the Mission’s patients or are available to serve occasionally as a substitute for a weekly volunteer, please contact.
Volunteers are welcome at the Dental Clinic, as well. Please call (325) 677-3455 for more information.
